About Me

Fabiana Cardetti

I earned my PhD in mathematics from Louisiana State University. In my postdoctoral years at the University of Connecticut I continued to work in control theory on Lie groups and also worked on partial differential equations that model biological processes. In 2005, I joined the mathematics graduate faculty and was appointed Teachers for a New Era Fellow at UConn. Since then my research interests are in Mathematics Education. Specifically, college mathematics teaching and learning, mathematics teacher preparation (prospective and practicing teachers), and K-12 mathematics education. In August 2021, I was appointed Courtesy Professor in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction at the Neag School of Education.
