Suzanne White Brahmia, PhD.

I am passionate about physics learning as a human endeavor, which drives my research, my teaching and my service. My work is built on a foundation that everyone, regardless of their socioeconomic background, can be given a fair shot to experience the thrill of success with understanding physics.

Our team explores mathematization in physics: Novice-to-expert transition, quantification, proportional reasoning, negativity, covariational reasoning, and inventing with contrasting cases. Our mathematization research activities include:

We’re implementing Assessable Learning Objectives (ALOs) across the introductory curriculum as a departmental practice, with a research focus on ALOs associated with mathematization, collaboration and communication.

Enjoy the journey!
