PhD student, Birkbeck, University of London

Fotini Vasilopoulos is currently carrying out an ESRC-funded doctoral research project at the Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development and Centre for Educational Neuroscience at Birkbeck, University of London, UK. Her research focus is on qualitative aspects of physical activity and their impact on cognition and social and emotional learning in primary school children, with a view to improve how physical education is taught in schools. Her motivation for this topic began during her time teaching yoga and dance in inner city London primary schools as a way to improve outcomes for disadvantaged children. She aims to develop a sustainable way to apply her findings through primary school teacher CPD.
