Dr Thorsten Scheiner

Research Fellow

Dr Thorsten Scheiner is a Research Fellow in Mathematics Education at the Institute for Learning Sciences & Teacher Education. Prior to this role, he was a Lecturer in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. Thorsten's research is oriented toward theory advancement in two research areas: mathematical cognition and teacher cognition. In mathematical cognition, he explores emergent processes involved in knowing, learning and sense-making of advanced mathematics. In teacher cognition, he studies interdependencies of teacher knowing and teacher noticing. Thorsten pursues diverse yet mutually reinforcing sets of lines of inquiry. His recent research explores tensions, conflicts, and paradoxes existing in the field that impede and enable theoretical innovation in mathematics education.
