Personal profile

Biography

Alexia is a PhD student in Education and Learning Sciences at the University of Edinburgh, currently doing her 3rd year. Her doctoral research is aimed at examining the triangulation of methods for capturing engagement in early years while being in a science centre. Her research is part of the Move2Learn proyect, which is a UK/US collaboration to understand embodied science learning in the early years funded funded by the Wellcome Trust, the ESRC and the NSF.  

She is currently also working as a Research Associate in the project Move2Learn4Teachers, which aims at using embodied learning principles to co-designing STEM primary resources and CPD along with primary teachers and science practitioners. This is a project that collaborates with UCL, SSERC, Glasgow Science Centre and Science Museum Group. 

Alexia studied her BSc (Hons) degree in Psychology at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (2009-2013) with a particular interest towards neuropsychology, focusing her thesis on analysing the development of recognition of facial expressions of emotion in Mexican children and adolescents. She was also part of the Neuropsychology and Cognition Lab at the same institution for 4 years. In 2016 she did her MSc in Human Cognitive Neuropsychology in the University of Edinburgh. Her dissertation focused on the influence of social contexts (competition-cooperation) in the executive functions of 5-8 year old children using NIRS (Near-Infrared Spectroscopy) as neuroimaging technique to analyse it.

Professionally she taught robotics to children in elementary school as extracurricular activities for 4 years. Interestingly children would never use a notebook to learn and remember what was being taught. This started her interest in a more interdisciplinary approach of science education and neuropsychology.
