I joined the Cognitive Science of Teaching and Learning division in the Fall of 2021. I completed my undergraduate education at the Interamerican University of Puerto Rico with a BA in Education and my graduate education at the University of Granada, Spain, with an MS in Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience. My academic experience and my years as a teacher in public school settings led to my passion for understanding how humans learn and using cognitive science findings to enrich, inform, and develop instructional practices.
My current research interest concerns how body-based interactions facilitate student learning of mathematics and how teachers can effectively engage students in embodied learning. I aim to help design educational spaces and practices that emphasize the grounded nature of cognition and capitalize on learning that comes with the body.
Outside of academics, I enjoy music, poetry, running, traveling, and photography. I love family time and visiting my native island, Puerto Rico.
