Psychologist Researcher at the Mathematical Modeling Center of the Faculty of Physical and Mathematical Sciences of the University of Chile
Psychologist, master’s degree in educational psychology from the Catholic University of Chile and doctorate in education from the University of Manchester in the United Kingdom. Her research has focused on understanding teaching processes in the area of mathematics education and the use of this knowledge for the development of learning resources, design of evaluation models and measurement instruments. She is currently a researcher at the Mathematical Modeling Center of the Faculty of Physical and Mathematical Sciences of the University of Chile. Her areas of research are the relationship of gender and mathematics in school age and the processes that explain why women choose and persist in academic careers with high mathematical content. In particular, she is interested in understanding the contextual and institutional difficulties that women of different ages must face in order to develop positive relationships with mathematics, for which she uses sociocultural theoretical models and mixed research methodologies.
