Ph.D. Educational Psychology
Self-regulated learning, formative assessment (self-assessment & peer assessment), rubrics, collaborative learning & socially shared regulated learning.
I work as a researcher at the Developmental & Educational Psychology Department, at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (funded by the Ramón y Cajal research program -2014 call-). Additionally I am Honorary Professor at Deakin University (Australia) at the Centre for Research in Assessment and Digital Learning. I am also one of the coordinators of the EARLI SIG-1 group Assessment and Evaluation; and member of the Continental Europe team at the Assessment for Learning International Network (AfLIN).
My research interest is twofolded. First the understanding and promotion of self-regulated learning -at the invidual level- and socially shared regulated learning -at the collaborative learning level-. Second, the relationship between self-regulated learning and the use of formative assessment (mainly self-assessment but also peer assessment).
I received my Ph.D. in Educational Psychology from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid in 2011 (my dissertation can be downloaded here), the same university where I completed my Bachelor of Science in Education (Specialty Music) and the Bachelor of Science in Educational Psychology. In September of 2011 I started working as a post-doc at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona within the SINTEresearch group, funded by the Alianza 4 Universidades. In September of 2012, I started working for the PROSPECTS (PI Sanna Järvelä) project in Oulu (Finland) as a post-doctoral researcher.
