Gabriel Lee is a Research Officer at the Department of Education. His research interests include mathematics teacher education, mathematical argumentation and proof, teacher beliefs and practices, and the use of language in mathematics classrooms.

Gabriel works on ‘Developing Language-Responsive Mathematics Classrooms’ project, which is led by Dr Jenni Ingram and aims to design a set of materials to support teachers and students to overcome linguistic challenges associated with learning mathematics.

Having started as a secondary mathematics teacher in Hong Kong, Gabriel obtained his DPhil in Education in 2022 and worked as a Lecturer in Education (Secondary Mathematics) at University of Stirling in 2022 and as a Senior Research Fellow at University of Nottingham in 2022–2023. He is a Fellow of Advance HE and currently an Editorial Assistant for the international journal Research in Mathematics Education.

He applies design research methodology, advanced quantitative models, and mixed research methods to the investigation of research questions in mathematics education. He actively engages in research projects, such as ‘Supporting Secondary Mathematics Teachers to Enhance their Students’ Proof Competencies’ (2020–2021) led by Prof Gabriel Stylianides and ‘Evaluation of the University of Nottingham’s Onebillion Mathematics Intervention’ (2017–2019) led by Prof Terezinha Nunes.
