My name is Oyemolade (Molade) Osibodu and I am an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Education at York University, Toronto, ON. I earned my doctorate in Mathematics Education from Michigan State University.
My experiences growing up in Lagos, Nigeria, teaching at African Leadership Academy in Johannesburg, South Africa, and obtaining all my post-secondary degrees in the United States inform my approach to research and my teaching. My research critically examines the experiences of Black youth (in continental Africa and the diaspora) in mathematics education. Specifically, I examine ways to decolonize mathematics education for liberatory futures, engaging with social justice issues in mathematics education, and exploring African indigenous mathematics practices. As a mathematics teacher educator, I support my students in critically examining the role of mathematics in society and who is deemed "naturally able" to do and be successful in mathematics.
Outside of work, I'd either be found on a long walk while catching up on a podcast, watching a TV show, reading, planning my (or your) next vacation, or bonding with the young humans in my life.
