Bio

I was born in Madrid (Spain) in 1989. I was trained in chemistry, science education, science communication and history and social studies of science, technology and medicine. I graduated (with Honors) in Chemistry (Complutense University of Madrid) before completing a Master Degree in Science Education (Complutense University of Madrid), a Postgraduate Certificate in Science Culture (University of Oviedo) and a Master Degree in History of Science and Science Communication (University of Alicante, Miguel Hernández University and University of Valencia). I obtained my first PhD in Education (Didactics of Science/Science Education) at the Autónoma University of Madrid (Summa Cum Laude). Currently I am working on my second PhD in History and Social Studies of Science at the University of València.

 

My training has been supported by several grants, fellowships, awards and recognitions. As an undergraduate student I received the Comunidad de Madrid Excellence Grants and the Collaboration Grant of the Spanish Ministry of Education. As a postgraduate student, I obtained the Extraordinary Prize for my Master Degree in History of Science and the Catalan Society of History of Science and Technology Award for Master Degree's Thesis. As a PhD Student in science education I received an Autónoma University of Madrid Postgraduate Internship. My PhD dissertation in history of science was funded by a Juanelo Turriano Fellowship.

 

I currently work as a Research Fellow at the López Piñero Institute for Science Studies (València, Spain). I do research in history of science education focusing on early 20th century teaching practices, material culture and the pedagogical uses of history of science. I also do research in science education working on the analysis of the history of chemistry in current chemistry textbooks. Moreover, I am External Researcher of the Science and Mathematics Education for Educational Change and Social Justice Research Group of the Autónoma University of Madrid. I am board member of the Didactics and History Group of the Spanish Royal Society of Physics and the Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry and member of the Teaching Council of the Catalan Society of History of Science and Technology. My research career has resulted in several publications and talks in national and international conferences and workshops.

 

As an Associate Lecturer in History of Science, I teach history of technology courses in the School of Engineering of the University of València. Besides, I have developed my teaching experience as an invited lecturer in several Teacher Training Courses. I also taught physcics and chemistry courses as a Secondary Education teacher.

 

I strongly believe that education is a real opportunity to change society. I also think that history of science is a powerful tool to blur boundaries between science and humanities. Hence, I share my journy trough the historical, social and educational kernel of science in several dissemination projects. I have also curated some exhibitions on science history and science education. On this page you can find all updated information about my work.
