Ami Mamolo is Assistant Professor of Mathematics Education at Ontario Tech University. Her primary research interests focus on mathematical reasoning and understanding when contextualized in non-routine problems, situations, or digital modalities. In particular she is interested in how creative approaches to math teaching and learning can be networked to foster conceptual growth, meaningful engagement, and enjoyment with mathematics. Her projects related to teachers' mathematical knowledge, mathematical applications to social justice, and computational modeling have received funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. Her current SSHRC-funded work looks at using mathematical models to disrupt probabilistic misconceptions about social issues.
Ami completed her Ph.D. in 2009 from Simon Fraser University and was the recipient of the Dean's Medal for Academic Achievement. She currently serves on the executive committee of the Canadian Mathematics Education Study Group (Groupe Canadien d'Étude en Didactique des Mathématiques) and the editorial board of the Canadian Journal for Science, Mathematics, and Technology Education. She is also co-chair of the steering committee for the Fields MathEd Forum.
