Alexia is a doctoral student of Learning Sciences on the Move2Learn project at the Centre for Digital Education.
She is interested in engagement and the improvement in methods from an embodied perspective. Her doctoral research project: “What does engagement look like in early science learning?” is about developing a multimodal triangulation method that allows capturing and measuring engagement in younger children when they are at a science centre combining traditional and new tools for it.
She did her MSc in Human Cognitive Neuropsychology at the University of Edinburgh focusing on how social environments (competitive or cooperative) could influences children's executive functions.
