Xinyue supports work on research strategy and writing of the wider Cambridge Mathematics project. She also conducts and contributes to case studies to explore a number of mathematical topics and themes, and coordinates the external review process including managing relationships with external reviewers.
As an educational researcher, Xinyue studied a BA in Education Studies at UCL – Institute of Education, where she researched how students used smartphones to learn in a variety of contexts. While there, she also worked as a Student Ambassador. After graduating with a First Class degree, she then undertook an MPhil in Educational Research at the University of Cambridge, where she explored how students used portable devices to learn mathematics, and developed a high level of analytical capability in qualitative, quantitative, and mixed-methods research. She then stayed to investigate secondary school-age learners' out-of-class (community and home-based settings) STEM learning experience with digital technology for her PhD at the Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge.
Xinyue worked as a supervisor of education for undergraduate courses and as an undergraduate examination invigilator at the University of Cambridge before joining Cambridge University Press & Assessment in 2022. She also reviewed a book proposal for the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) and reviewed a manuscript for the journal Teacher Development.
