# Promoted to Associate Professor with Tenure

## Congratulations to three math faculty members promoted to Associate Professor with Tenure

### Jennifer Czocher

Dr. Jennifer Czocher received her Ph.D. from The Ohio State University in Mathematics Education in 2013. Her research interests include studentsâ€™ mathematical thinking and cognition, research in undergraduate mathematics education (RUME), the impact of mathematical modeling tasks on studentsâ€™ mathematical thinking, and how mathematical reasoning supports STEM education. She is currently studying how individuals learn to use mathematics as a representational system and the role teacher questioning may have in helping individuals coordinate their mathematical and non-mathematical knowledge.

### Hiroko Warshauer

Dr. Hiroko Kawaguchi Warshauer received her Ph. D. in mathematics education from the University of Texas at Austin in 2011. Her research interests include areas of teaching and learning that foster productive struggle and investigation of professional teacher noticing of student thinking at pre-service and in-service levels. She is co-author of the ** Math Explorations** curriculum, a Texas Mathworks middle school textbook series state adopted in Texas and the Mathworks Junior Summer Math Camp curriculum. She provides professional development to support curriculum implementation. She is the Mathworks research coordinator, overseeing Mathworks related research about summer math camps, teacher training, curriculum, and classroom interactions with faculty and doctoral students in mathematics and mathematics education.

### Yong Yang

Yong Yang received his Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Florida in 2009. He is an Associate Professor of Mathematics and has interests in finite group theory, combinatorics and number theory. His recent research is on the orbit structures of group actions.
