I'm a Psychologist from Valparaíso, Chile with a Master's Degree in 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 intersection of gender and social class in higher education students, looking at the role of relative social status -such as social class and educational status- and experiences of fitting in, and how they affect their success expectations.
During this academic year, I was awarded with a Small Grant Research from the Centre for Social Mobility (University of Exeter). The project aims to enhance academic success for working class, low income households and first generation students during the Covid pandemic, from an intersectional approach.

Our project will apply a participative methodology to understand the insights of underrepresented students in relation to widening participation strategies. We propose a focus on widening collaboration strategies, that promote students from LIH having an active role in the development of these strategies and that recognise their own knowledge about the challenges that they have faced in achieving academic success.
