Christian has been involved in several research projects over recent 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.
In 2022, Christian started a project 'Inspecting the inspectorate' with the Nuffield Foundation.
