Jairo A. Navarrete-Ulloa

Adjunct assistant professor, Institute of Education Sciences, Universidad de O’Higgins (Chile)

His research seeks to understand reasoning based on analogies and the role of relational processing in learning. Attracted by the field of exact sciences, he studied Computer Engineering and Mathematical Engineering where he obtained recognition as one of the best students of his career. In his doctoral thesis he built a mathematical model that describes a cognitive mechanism called "analogy." This mechanism is used by the human mind to make comparisons between two entities in a very flexible way. His current research is aimed at the application of this mechanism to the development of technology in the educational area.
