Professor Diezmann is particularly interested in the cognition and creativity of individuals and groups in a broad range of educational contexts. Her research includes the learning and achievement of academics, teachers, and higher degree students; the role of information graphics in mathematics instruction, investigations and assessment; curriculum innovation and assessment in mathematics and science education; and the education of gifted individuals.
In tandem with her research, Professor Diezmann is highly engaged in professional development programs in schools and in the production of quality teaching resources. She has an extensive list of publications and has received numerous educational awards including two QUT Awards for Outstanding Academic Contribution (1999, Professional Leadership; 2003, Research and Scholarship).
