We are proud to present our Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellow of the month, Nerea Martinez Yarza!
Nerea is a PhD candidate from Spain, and holds a Bachelor degree in Primary Education from the University of the Basque Country and a Master’s degree in Educational Sciences from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. Her doctoral thesis in the framework of the 6i Dirs project, co-supervised by Rosa Santibáñez Gruber and Josu Solabarrieta Eizaguirre, investigates the extent to which family involvement contributes to reducing social and educational inequalities of primary and secondary school pupils. In particular, it aims to improve the overall social-educational interventions and to come up with new approaches in disadvantaged environments.
Before being recruited as a 6i Dirs Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow, Nerea worked in Brussels at the European Education and Culture Executive Agency as a Project Officer. Currently, besides carrying out her own research project, she is also involved in several other projects of the university’s research group INTERVENTION: Quality of Life and Social Inclusion identifying risk and protective factors amongst minority youth and families.
Nerea has recently been selected to do her research stay with an OECD research centre and will spend 5 months of her training in France.
