Interests : Dr. Natthapoj Vincent Trakulphadetkrai currently serves as Director of Research Communications and Lecturer in Primary Mathematics Education at the University of Reading's Institute of Education.

His research interests are centred around the use of storytelling (particularly in the picture book format) to help enrich mathematics teaching and learning experiences.

He also leads the MathsThroughStories.org project, which sets out to investigate various aspects of using mathematical story picture books in mathematics education. The website also offers valuable and free resources for parents and teachers. Since its launch in March 2017, the website has now been viewed over 200,000 times by more than 35,000 teachers and parents from nearly 170 countries around the world.

​In addition to his lectureship in Primary Mathematics Education, Dr. Trakulphadetkrai also serves as an executive committee member and trustee of the UK Association of Teachers of Mathematics (ATM). Previously, he served as an executive committee member of the British Society for Research into Learning Mathematics (BSRLM); as Chair of the British Congress of Mathematics Education’s (BCME) Communications Committee as well as Co-Editor of the Mathematical Association’s (MA) Primary Mathematics Journal.

Prior to joining the University of Reading, Dr. Trakulphadetkrai was part of a research team at the UCL Institute of Education (University of London), contributing to a €2 million European Union-funded research project, called ‘Creative Little Scientists (CLS): Enabling Creativity through Science and Mathematics in Preschool and First Years of Primary Education’, which spanned across nine European countries.

​Dr. Trakulphadetkrai completed his PhD on primary teachers' beliefs about mathematics, its teaching and learning at the University of Cambridge under the supervision of Professor Paul Andrews, and was examined by Dr. Tim Rowland and Professor Stephen Lerman. His first Master's degree in International and Comparative Education was completed at the University of Oxford; and his second Master's degree in International Public Policy at the University of London's University College London (UCL). He completed his undergraduate primary teacher training degree with Mathematics specialism and with the Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) at Brunel University London.
