Lecturer in Psychology
Interested in cognitive and emotional development, children's learning, science learning, embodied cognition and engagement. I tend to have a neuropsychological perspective to my research, but considering a holistic view of the individual as bio-psycho-social.
I completed my PhD in Education and Learning Sciences at the University of Edinburgh looking at children's engagement when the learn about science in science centres. I was part of the Move2Learn project which looked at early years children's embodied learning when they were in science museums.
I did my BSc in Psychology in Mexico City, at the Faculty of Psychology (UNAM) where I was part of the Laboratory of Neuropsychology and Cognition and I mainly researched the development of recognition of facial emotional expressions. I then did my MSc in Human Cognitive Neuropsychology at the University of Edinburgh where I looked into the neural correlates of competitive and cooperative scenarios in children and their influence on executive functions.
