DPhil Student

College Affiliation: St Catherine's College

Following a career in engineering, Kinga Petrovai is currently pursuing her doctorate in mathematics and technology education.

Her doctoral research investigates how mathematics teachers integrate and innovate with tablets in their teaching.

Kinga earned a master’s degree from Harvard University in Technology, Innovation, and Education and is certified as a secondary mathematics and physics teacher by the Ontario College of Teachers in Canada. Prior to formally entering the field of education, Kinga earned a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering at Carleton University (Ottawa, Canada) and worked as an engineer for over five years at a Canadian Crown Corporation.

For over fifteen years, Kinga has worked and volunteered on a variety of educational projects, spanning across North America and the UK. Her passion for education led her to design and run a successful and innovative mentoring program for high school girls, volunteer in a school for dyslexic students, and tutor mathematics and physics to senior high school students. At the university level, Kinga worked on a variety of funded research projects at Harvard University and Oxford University. For the past two years, she has also designed and taught workshops on the use of technology in teaching to teacher education students (PGCE) at Oxford University.

While working towards her doctorate, Kinga is also a Junior Dean at St Catherine’s College, Oxford.
