Shandy Hauk

Shandy Hauk is a Senior Research Associate in the Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics (STEM) program at WestEd.

Hauk studies in-person and digitally mediated student and teacher learning in mathematics, science, and engineering in grades 6 and up. She is a researcher and leader for interculturally aware research, professional development, and assessment design for several federally funded projects. She collaborates on work that reaches thousands of STEM teachers and STEM students, grades 6–16.

Prior to joining WestEd, Hauk taught K–12 and college mathematics, middle and high school English, and graduate mathematics education research theory and design.

As a member of the mathematical sciences faculty at the University of Northern Colorado, Hauk has been doctoral advisor for six PhD students.

Hauk has authored many publications for academic and practitioner journals, and peer-reviewed conference proceedings. She regularly presents work at regional, national, and international conferences in the fields of education policy and mathematics and science education research.

She completed a BA in theater and film, a PhD in mathematics at the University of California, Irvine, and a post-doctoral fellowship in mathematics education at Arizona State University.
