Jason Cooper is a researcher in the Department of Science Teaching at the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel. He holds an MSc in mathematics (Hebrew University of Jerusalem), and a PhD in mathematics education (Weizmann Institute of Science, 2016).

One focus of his research is on roles and affordances of university-level mathematics for the development of teachers’ mathematical knowledge for teaching at school levels. This line of research brings together mathematicians and secondary-school mathematics teachers to discuss pedagogical and didactic dilemmas, and in so doing, to gain a deeper understanding of secondary-level mathematics and its teaching. Another line of his research is on introducing problem-solving activities into the routine of lower-secondary mathematics lessons.

Jason has been responsible for the ERME column (European Society for Research in Mathematics Education) in the EMS magazine since 2017.

Youcef Mammeri is, since 2022, a full Professor of Applied Mathematics in the Camille Jordan Institute, Jean Monnet University, France. He received his PhD in mathematics from University of Lille in 2008, and his accreditation to supervise research (HDR) from University of Picardie in 2015.

His research interests include modeling in life sciences, analysis of nonlinear PDEs and scientific computing, with applications to ecology, medicine, and biochemistry. More particularly, his work deals with the analysis of nonlinear dispersive PDE and advection-reaction-diffusion equations.

He is a member of the French Mathematical Society (SMF), and the French Applied and Industrial Mathematical Society (SMAI). He was the recipient of several grants and was PI for projects funded by ANR, CNRS and Campus France.
