Jacob Shapiro is a new Ph.D student in Math Education at Texas State University. He acquired bachelors degrees in Mathematics and Cognitive Science from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, and he is looking forward to applying insights gained from both of those disciplines towards research into how to help students of all ages become more able to learn and appreciate mathematics.

He enjoys math because he enjoys the process of working through a problem logically; the fact that every step follows from a previous step without having to take anything on faith is very satisfying to him. It's like solving a logic puzzle but without being able to look up the answer.
