Returning to the UK in 2013 she worked as a Leading Practitioner of Mathematics in Nottinghamshire before joining Bishop Grosseteste University in 2015 as the Senior Lecturer in Mathematics Education.

Zoe teaches on the PGCE Secondary Education Course where she is subject leader for Mathematics. She also teaches on the Undergraduate Degree in Mathematics and leads the third year pedagogy module.
Zoe’s research is in the area of the Psychology of Learning Mathematics – including the influence of globalisation, creativity, gender differences, resilience and the effect of mastery. Having seen a range of national and school cultures she is interested in the effects that reculturing and organisational change could have on students’ interest in, and retention of, Mathematics.
