About Ha Nguyen

I am an Assistant Professor of Mathematics Education at Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, GA. I am interested in students' understanding and thinking, STEM teaching and learning, and how to make mathematics relevant to students. Additionally, my research in algebra lies in real algebraic geometry. I am particularly interested in questions about positive polynomials and sums of squares in addition to real algebraic geometry.
