As the daughter of a teacher I am aware of the importance of clarity at any job.
People say that I am a great explainer, persistent and methodical.
I hold an undergraduate degree in Physics (2:1) by the University of La Laguna and a QTS by the University of Cantabria (TRN 1384392). I obtained a Certificate of Post-Graduate Studies in Natural Science (Physics) by the University of Cambridge and a Research Proficiency with Postgraduate Studies in Science Education by the University of La Laguna. I have been awarded a PhD (1:honours) in Education by the University of La Laguna.
My A-levels at Math were A.
While doing my degree as a physicist and as a researcher in summers I had to program mostly in Fortran 77 dealing with differential equations while doing numerical simulations, and analysing and interpreting data. When working for the Fundación Canaria Orotava de Historia de la Ciencia I would modify the html coding of webpages and sometimes make modifications to databases.
For my PhD I have manipulated, analysed and interpreted data using different software as Excel, SPSS and Matlab.
Last year I went with my children to a raspberry-pi event and programmed with Python small pixelated games.
Knowledge and learning
My degree in Physics has helped to develop logical thinking, analytical, IT and programming skills through solving problems, practicals in Astrophysics, and learning to program in FORTRAN 77. Throughout my degree and later as a teacher, a researcher and a sessional lecturer I have applied numerical skills and developed problem-solving skills. For example when teaching I address any numerical skill that my students struggle with. Teaching involves using problem-solving skills for example in detecting and addressing any difficulty that the student may have.
Through my degree in Physics and postgraduate courses in Physics and education I have some knowledge of statistical methods and analysis.
I have excellent organisational and time-management skills, proven by being a teacher and lecturer, having been self-employed, finishing a PhD and dealing with three part-time jobs in 2014. I have demonstrated being able to meet targets and deadlines while working for the Fundación Canaria Orotava de Historia de la Ciencia, as a teacher, sessional lecturer and through my PhD.
Having been self-employed proves that I am proactive and capable of taking initiative. As a teacher and sessional lecturer I plan ahead for any eventuality that may arise within the classroom. As a teacher and sessional lecturer I take initiative in performing an activity without asking the technician on the go. Working in the lab involves developoing risk awareness among my students.
Through my PhD I have developed excellent skills in communicating within academia. I have excellent writing skills, with experience in writing course materials for Secondary school (Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias), writing manuals for my colleagues (Fundación Canaria Orotava de Historia de la Ciencia); giving feedback online and through e-mails(ASKE Physics online course of the University of Reading); contributing to newspapers, magazines and conferences (in Spanish and English); writing a PhD thesis and journal articles (two submitted, one in preparation, all in English) and proof-reading a Physics book for the University of East Anglia.
I have nine years of experience in informal education where I have communicated orally with scientists, or the public, be it in small or large groups.
