Personal profile


I trained as a Special Educational Needs teacher in my home country (Chile) and worked for 6 years with children with hearing impairment and their families. Subsequently I moved to the UK, where I pursued graduate studies at the University of Cambridge looking at self-regulated learning in young children and particularly at the influence of family interactive patterns on its development. Since then, I have held research only and research and teaching positions at The University of Cambridge, The Institute of Education in London, and Murdoch University in Western Australia.  In January 2019 I joined the Faculty of Education at University of Canberra as Associate Professor in Early Childhood Education and Communities. In this role I hope to engage with educators and other community members in research that makes a difference to young children and their families.
