Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests are centred around educators' agency, collective praxis, and social and epistemic justice in the context of [science] education. My research critically debates how neoliberal agendas have shaped science education, looking for counternarratives to such a project in teachers' daily practices.

Philosophically, I am interested in Paulo Freire's philosophy of education and different aspects of feminist philosophy of science. I am also interested in qualitative methodologies, physics education research, and inter and transdisciplinary praxis.
