Dr. Julius Davis joined the faculty in the fall of 2010 as an Assistant Professor. Prior to his appointment, Dr. Davis completed a two year research and faculty position at the Center for Mathematics Education at the University of Maryland, College Park. At the University of Maryland, Dr. Davis was a member of the Case Studies of Urban Algebra I Teachers Research Project.
Dr. Davis continues to work with this research project and conduct research of African American teachers. His other body of research focuses on African American middle and high school students’ lived realities, schooling, and mathematics education. This body of research comes from his dissertation research entitled “A critical ethnography of Black middle school students’ lived realities and mathematics education.” In both areas of research, Dr. Davis critically analyzes the impact of policies on African American students and teachers. He taught middle and high school mathematics prior to become a faculty member in academia.
