"Dr Christian Bokhove is Associate Professor in Mathematics Education within Southampton Education School at the University of Southampton. He is Doctoral Programme Director and local network lead of the UKRN Southampton."

Dr Christian Bokhove is a specialist on the use of ICT in mathematics education. He was a teacher of mathematics and computer science, and head of ICT at a secondary school from 1998 to 2012 in Zaandam, the Netherlands. During these years he participated in and led projects on maths and ICT (wisweb, Galois, Sage). In 2011 he obtained his Ph.D at Utrecht University’s Freudenthal Institute with his thesis ‘Use of ICT for acquiring, practicing and assessing algebraic expertise'. From August 2012 he is appointed at the University of Southampton, specialising in mathematics education, technology use and research methods. He has been involved in several projects over the last years, including the European MC-squared project which looked at creating creative, digital books for mathematics, and the British Academy funded ‘enGasia’ project which looked at geometry education in secondary schools in Hong Kong, England and Japan. Two current projects are a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on World Class Maths: Asian Teaching Methods with publisher MacMillan and Prof. Lianghuo Fan, and a feasibility study to start up a new version of the seminal mathematics textbooks of the School Mathematics Project. The following selected publications show the breadth of Dr. Bokhove’s work:
