Elena Pasquinelli

Responsible of Research, Innovation, Evaluation - Project Manager, Fondation la Main à la Pâte


Since my PhD in Philosophy of cognitive science (EHESS) in 2006, I work at the interface between research in cognitive science and education. My main interest is the translation of fundamental knowledge about cognition into applied research. With this aim in mind I have joined the Fondation La main à la pâte 2012. Since then, I’m in charge of creating synergies between educators and researchers (cognitive science, neuroscience, and education). I also develop pedagogical resources for teachers (primary and middle school) and contribute to the professional development for teachers and teachers’ trainers in topics such as: cognitive science, learning and the brain, critical thinking.
