Personal profile

Research profile

Alexander Schüler-Meyer is Assistant Professor in the Eindhoven School of Education at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). His areas of expertise are learning processes in transition and multilingual mathematics learning. He has worked on areas such as algebraic thinking, transitioning students' practices of defining, and the activation of multilingual Turkish-German speaking students' Turkish language as a resource in the learning of fractions. 


The wide variety of students' thinking about mathematics surprises me again and again.

Academic background

Alexander Schüler-Meyer has been a teacher student for upper secondary schools at the University of Oldenburg, Germany, on the subjects of Mathematics and History. He then became a graduate student in the PhD-program ProfaS: Processes of subject matter structuring at the University of Oldenburg, in which several subject-matter didactics cooperated to investigate teachers' professional development. 

While finishing his PhD, he took up a Postdoc-position at the Institute for Development and Research in Mathematics Education (IEEM) at TU Dortmund University, where he worked with Susanne Prediger on algebra learning and mathematical teaching and learning processes in multilingual settings. 

In 2018, Alexander Schüler-Meyer took up a position as Assistant Professor at Eindhoven School of Education (ESoE).
