(M) I am currently technical research staff at Universidad Autonoma de Madrid (UAM), funded by a COST Action “The Digital Literacy and Multimodal Practices of Young Children (DigiLitEY)” (2015-2019), in which I am also a researcher and Management Committee’s substitute member. Before joining UAM, I have collaborated with Educational Research Network for West and Central Africa (ERNWACA), Golden Web Foundation in UK, Education for Employment (EFE) Foundation in Madrid, and University of Makeni, Sierra Leone. My research interests in the medium-terms are around the following three areas:
(1) Digital practices of young children and their relationships to ‘learning’ in a broad sense.
(2) Young people’s socio-educational identities, aspirations, and trajectories, and the changing place of TVET and academic education in them.
(3) Exploration and advancement of qualitative, multimodal, visual, participatory/collaborative methodology in research with children and young people.
A long-term objective is to develop these lines of research in relation to broader themes which I have explored when I have started my research career: peace and sustainable development of societies, and well-being of children and young people, especially of those who are disadvantaged. + info: Academia.edu
