Introduction
My research interests include diversity, inclusion and gender in STEM education, the development of educational and professional trajectories and the influence of public policies and cultural aspects in these trajectories. I work with different methods and I’m interested in exploring how they can be integrated. My current projects include promotion and evaluation of affirmative actions for participation and inclusion of women in STEM at undergraduate and academic career levels.

Full-text available
Triadic sequences (initiation-response-follow up) are a frequent type of interaction in classrooms in many different countries. This study describes, using a spoken discourse codification system, these sequences in 89 Chilean public middle-school level mathematics lessons, chosen at random from 684 classes that were filmed for a national evaluation...

Full-text available
A common theme in accounts of choosing mathematics is that of persistence in the face of troubles or difficulties which are often associated with the structuring effects of gender, class, culture and ethnicity. Centring on an analysis of one woman’s account of becoming a mathematician, we build on our understanding of multiple and developing identi...

The construction of positive mathematical identities (MIs) is a complex and central issue in school mathematics, where girls are usually “counted out” of the field. This study explored positive MIs (high achiever and positive relationship with mathematics) of 3 girls. The results highlight diversity in how these girls experienced mathematics. The s...

This paper presents the results of a systematic review of the empirical literature, reported in research journals, on Mathematics Learner Identity (MLI). In the mathematics education research field, arguments have been made that the conceptualization of Mathematics Identity (MI) is inconsistent and this makes the literature as a whole incoherent. T...

Social isolation can be a consequence of acquired brain injury (ABI). Few studies have examined the relationship between social isolation and mental health after ABI. In this cross-sectional and case-control study we compared 51 ABI survivors and 51 matched healthy controls on measures of social isolation (network size, social support and lonelines...
Chapter
Many professional development (PD) programmes aim for teachers to incorporate more problem solving in their mathematics teaching, but research aimed at understanding how teachers maintain this change is comparatively less developed. We present here some results of research into the experiences of teachers in the 18 months after their completion of...
Article
Clinicians and researchers have become increasingly interested in the potential of technology in assisting persons with dementia (PwD). However, several issues have emerged in relation to how studies have conceptualized who the main technology user is (PwD/carer), how technology is used (as compensatory, environment modification, monitoring or retr...
Article
During the last decade clinicians and researchers have become increasingly interested in the potential of technology in assisting persons with dementia (PwD). However, several issues have emerged in relation to how studies and reviews have conceptualized who the main technology user is (PwD and/or carer), how technology is used (as compensatory, en...
Article
It is not easy for teachers to re-author their professional identities to incorporate change after participation in professional development (PD). In this article, we seek to understand Chilean teachers’ collective identity performances after PD into collaborative problem-solving mathematics. We undertook a classical thematic analysis of semi-struc...
Article
Although teacher educators are central in improving initial teacher education, there has been little attention into this actor both in international and Latin American research. This paper reports an exploratory qualitative study on the experiences of teacher educators enacting their roles and corresponding identities in different university contex...
Article
Full-text available
Recent studies have suggested that emotion regulation (ER) strategies, such as reappraisal and suppression, rely on the use of verbal thinking. Outside the field of ER, verbal thinking, particularly in the form of inner speech, has been largely linked to behavior and cognitive regulation. However, no article has yet directly addressed the potential...
Chapter
This chapter examines how gendered and classed positions are co-constructed and accessed through participation in whole class discussions in the primary mathematics classroom. Using Holland and Bourdieu, we highlight how forms of participation mark out gendered and classed positions in education and how this is mediated through the exchange of capi...
Article
Full-text available
Introduction: Historically, emotion regulation problems have been reported as a common consequence of rPFC damage. It has been proposed that the rPFC, particularly the rIFG, has a key role inhibiting prepotent reflexive actions, thus contributing to emotion regulation and self-regulation. This study is the first to directly explore this hypothesis,...
Conference Paper
This research paper reports the intersection between mathematics identity and the peer positioning of high attainment girls in a particular mathematics’ classroom in Chile. Following an ethnographic approach, we explore how this intersection mediates girls’ perceptions of what mathematics is and how it is supposed to be done/practised. The main fin...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In this paper we explore the role of ‘others’ in one woman’s mathematical identity. We draw on sociocultural theory to analyse identity in terms of the relationship between self and others: that is, as mutually shaped in interaction with others through the enactment of an‘identity in practice’. Our analysis focuses on the role of ‘caring’ as a part...
Article
Full-text available
The study of emotional changes after brain injury has contributed enormously to the understanding of the neural basis of emotion. However, little attention has been placed on the methods used to elicit emotional responses in people with brain damage. Of particular interest are subjects with right hemisphere [RH] cortical lesions, who have been desc...
Article
Full-text available
Dysexecutive impairment is a common problem after brain injury, particularly after damage to lateral surface of the frontal lobes. There is a large literature describing the cognitive deficits associated to executive impairment after dorsolateral damage, however, little is known about its impact on emotional functioning. This case study describes c...
Conference Paper
We here add to the sparse literature on the use of Lesson Study (LS) in initial teacher education (ITE), reporting how LS can mediate development of reflective practice (RP). A cohort of 50 student-teachers, all secondary mathematics postgraduates, were involved in lesson study subgroups: planning, teaching-and-observing, analysing and reflecting o...

Incorporar en forma efectiva la tecnología en la sala de clases es hoy un gran desafío. En este artículo se presenta un sistema de aprendizaje colaborativo móvil (MCSCL: Mobile Computer Supported Collaborative Learning) que utiliza PDAs conectados inalámbricamente para apoyar la enseñanza de las ciencias. Esta tecnología promueve la colaboración, s...
Article
Full-text available
A considerable number of mood induction (MI) procedures have been developed to elicit emotion in normal and clinical populations. Although external procedures (e.g., film clips, pictures) are widely used, a number of experiments elicit emotion by using self-generated procedures (e.g., recalling an emotional personal episode). However, no study has...
Article
This paper presents the development and initial validation of new measures of critical thinking and noncognitive attributes that were designed to supplement existing standardized tests used in the admissions system for higher education in Chile. The importance of various facets of this process, including the establishment of technical rigor and pol...

El rigor técnico y el apoyo político del desarrollo de los instrumentos, su pilotaje e implementación son cruciales,...
Article
There is a wealth of evidence that collaboration between learners can enhance the outcomes for all concerned. This supports the theorization of learning as a socio-cultural practice, framed by Vygotsky and developed by other researchers such as Rogoff, Lave and Wenger. However, there is also evidence that working collaboratively may not be a sponta...
