Profile

Rajiv Satsangi is an Assistant Professor of Special Education in the College of Education and Human Development at George Mason University. His research studies the intersection of technology and pedagogy in mathematics education for students with or at-risk for a learning disability. His most recent grant-funded projects have evaluated the use of virtual manipulatives and video modeling for teaching Algebra and Geometry curricula to students in inclusionary settings. He previously earned the Must-Read Article of the Year Award from the Council for Learning Disabilities for his research published in Learning Disability Quarterly as well as the Samuel A. Kirk Research Publication Award from the Division for Learning Disabilities for his work in Learning Disabilities Research & Practice. Dr. Satsangi graduated with a Ph.D. in Special Education from Purdue University in 2015. Prior to pursuing his graduate studies, he served as a special education mathematics teacher in the Indianapolis Public School district.
