Dr Laura Tuohilampi (UNSW Arts, Design and Architecture) is a mathematics education researcher, an in-service teacher trainer and the founder of Math Hunger and Maths for Humans. Passionate about shifting mindsets to view maths as positive, engaging and achievable, her work explores practices that innovate and inspire traditional teaching methods to evolve with students’ learning habits. She has been awarded the Leader of the Future Award for her work in making mathematics learning more inclusive. Her dissertation was awarded The Best Didactical Thesis of the Year Award in Finland in 2017. Her research focuses on affect, engagement and the social and contextual aspects of learning mathematics. The international version of her book Math Hunger will be published in 2021.
