Personal profile


Dr. Jennifer Hall (she/her) is a Senior Lecturer in Mathematics Education. Prior to beginning her position at Monash University, Jennifer worked as a Post-Doctoral Scholar in Mathematics Education at the University of Calgary, under the supervision of Dr. Jo Towers. In this position, Jennifer worked on a large-scale SSHRC-funded research project entitled 'Mathematics Experiences, Images, and Identities,' in which students' experiences learning mathematics in Canadian schools and the ways that these experiences influence students' images of mathematics and mathematical identities were investigated.

Jennifer's Ph.D. thesis, entitled 'Societal Views of Mathematics and Mathematicians and their Influence on Elementary Students,' was completed in 2013. In this project, Jennifer explored elementary students' views of and experiences with mathematics and mathematicians, and the ways that students' views may be influenced by parents' views, teachers' views, and popular media representations of mathematics and mathematicians.

Research interests

In her research, Jennifer focuses on the relationships that students form with mathematics, investigating the influence of their in- and out-of-school experiences. She has a particular interest in exploring students' gendered relationships with the subject area and the ways in which gender-related research in mathematics education is conducted. Furthermore, in her research, Jennifer investigates university mathematics students' experiences in mathematics programs and departments, as well as pre-service teachers' views of and experiences with numeracy, including the LANTITE test.
