Cristina García-Ruiz

Institution: University of Málaga

Country: Spain

After graduating and completing an MSc in Advanced Chemistry, Cristina received her PhD in Organic Chemistry from the University of Málaga in December 2014, under the supervision of Prof. F. Sarabia.

Cristina was a visiting student at the University of Cambridge in 2013 under the supervision of Prof. S. V. Ley and Dr. D. L. Browne. This was followed by a postdoctoral fellowship in 2015 in the group of Prof. V. K. Aggarwal at the University of Bristol.

In 2017, after gaining a significant background in organic synthesis, methodology, and medicinal chemistry, Cristina decided to expand her professional career, redirecting it to Science Education research. Thus, she completed the MEd in Teaching Training at the University of Málaga and enrolled herself in a second PhD focused on Inquiry-based Science Education (IBSE) under the supervision of Prof. Dr Ángel Blanco and Dr Teresa Lupión. Gratefully, in 2020, Cristina earned a Postdoctoral Research Contract at the Science Education Department, where she has been working in pre-service science teacher education and IBSE to promote scientific literacy and responsible citizenship in Secondary Education.

Since 2022, Cristina has continued to advance her career in science education as an independent researcher at the University of Málaga, applying her extensive knowledge and expertise. Her contributions have been acknowledged with the prestigious Ramón y Cajal (RyC) Postdoctoral Fellowship, which she was awarded in March 2022.

Continuing her academic pursuits, Cristina successfully earned her second PhD in Education and Social Communication in January 2023. Currently, she is the Principal Investigator (PI) of a project that delves into the complex realm of teacher identity, a crucial aspect of education that she is deeply passionate about.
