DR. ANTHONY EZEIFE
Dr. Anthony N. Ezeife (B.Sc., M.A., M.Sc., Ph.D.), is a Professor of Mathematics and Science Education in the Faculty of Education and Academic Development, University of Windsor. A much-travelled educator, Dr. Ezeife has taught, and done extensive cross-cultural research in several countries across the globe. His main research focus is on making mathematics and science culturally relevant and meaningful to learners in general, and in particular, for students of indigenous cultural backgrounds. To this end, he has targeted several mathematics/science studies on Canadian Aboriginal students, Native populations in the United States of America, and some other at-risk learners in diverse cultures in many continents. These include students in West Africa, parts of Asia, and South America. His current study, the Mathematics-Schema project, is based in Walpole Island, Ontario, Canada, where he is working with Anishnabe-speaking First Nations’ students, teachers, community educators, and Aboriginal Elders. Dr. Ezeife’s rich publication record dates back to the 1980s. To date, he has published numerous articles and several, oft-cited, award-winning research papers in top-tier scholarly journals in virtually all the continents of the globe.
