Bob Perry

Bob Perry is recently retired from paid university work after 45 years in higher education. He is Emeritus Professor in the School of Education at Charles Sturt University, Albury-Wodonga, Australia and Director, Peridot Education Pty Ltd. Bob has recently received an Honorary Doctorate from Mälardalen University, Sweden and a Career Research Award from the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia in recognition of his body of research. His doctoral graduates and current candidates along with other projects, including educational evaluations in Queensland, and writing and editing, seem to keep him just about as busy as he used to be when working for the university. Bob's current research interests include powerful mathematics ideas in preschool and the first years of school; ethical tensions in researching with children; transition to school, with particular emphasis on starting school within families with complex support needs, preschool education in rural and remote communities, and evaluation of educational programs. Bob shares life with his partner, Sue Dockett, and their son, Will.
