About me
Amie Albrecht is Professor of Mathematics Education and Professorial Lead in UniSA Education Futures.
Amie's teaching expertise lies in developing mathematical thinking and problemsolving skills in students, and in innovative design of curricula and assessment that supports student growth. Her work has been recognised with national and university teaching awards, including an 2019 AAUT Citation for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning. She is a regular speaker to maths teachers and school students, having given more than 30 invited keynotes, presentations and workshops across Australia since 2016.
Amie's interest in creating supportive learning environments and inclusive professional communities has led to a number of service and leadership roles within the mathematics profession and education communities.
Prior to moving to Education Futures, Amie's research focussed mainly on industrial applications of mathematics, particularly scheduling and control methods for railway operations and energyefficient driving, and has been funded by the ARC Discovery and Linkage schemes and Cooperative Research Centres.
She is one of 16 women featured in the Australian Women of Mathematics gallery of portraits.
