i'm a Psychologist from Valparaíso, Chile with a Master's Degree in Child and Adolescent Clinical Psychology. Currently, I'm in Exeter as a Ph.D. student interested in education, gender, and social class. My research has been focused on addressing the relationship between identity and social context during adolescence and youth on three main subjects: (a) the role of taboos and gender during the transition to adolescence in young girls, (b) a critical analysis about the subjective and social construction of parenthood in parents of adolescents and (c) a critical analysis about adolescence and youth discourses in media and psychology research. 

Currently, I'm interested in studying the identity of students in the context of massification of higher education, looking for analyzing the role of the neoliberal model of educational inclusion in higher education, experiences of fitting in and how they affect first-generation women career choices.
