I am Emeritus Professor of Mathematics Education at Nord University and at Utrecht University, the Netherlands. In Utrecht I worked at the Freudenthal Institute where I received my PhD degree in mathematics education based on a study on assessment in mathematics education in 1996. In 2007 I was appointed as a Full Professor. My main work at the Freudenthal Institute was doing research and supervising PhD students. At Nord University I was appointed as a Professor from 2017 to July 2024. My work here was mainly teaching.

Over the years I published a number of articles, book chapters and books. I attended many conferences and workshops to present about my work and I was several times asked for giving an invited lecture. Furthermore, I was involved in organising several national and international conferences. During my appointment at Utrecht University I had a guest professorship at Dortmund University in the winter semester of 2004/2005. From 2005 to the end of 2009 this was followed by a guest professorship at Humboldt University in Berlin.

At Nord University I was teaching the courses MAT5001/5004 and MAT5002/5005 to Year 4 students. The topic of this course was "Current research in mathematics education". I designed this course together with Klaus-Peter Eichler.

At Nord University my research activities consisted mainly of writing research proposals. Despite the fact that NFR evaluated them as very good and excellent, they were not funded. Other attempts to link a PhD student for mathematics education to the research group were also unsuccessful. Later, I started with two colleagues a small-scale University School project built on the idea that formed the core of the not funded research proposals, namely enriching existing textbook tasks to develop students' mathematical reasoning. Furthermore, I worked with a master student on a scientific article based on the student's master thesis on how students think about mathematics tasks. Finally, I also participated in the Newton Rooms project.
