Research Interests

Sandra's PhD was in the field of metaphysics, on the reality and nature of the self. Her research covered identity and the role of narrative, psycho-social pathologies and the neurology of the mind, perception, philosophy of language, and the biological foundations of consciousness. Drawing from her thesis, she has presented papers at two international conferences, on the self and phenomenal consciousness at the Self: Between Consciousness and Non-Being conference at Hokkaido University, Japan in 2017 and a paper on self-identity at the Re-member: self-narrative, memory and identity conference at the Sorbonne, Paris in 2015.

Sandra has established a research nexus between philosophy and  learning and teaching through her interest in critical thinking. She has researched the teaching of critical thinking skills to international students, along with the role of critical thinking and argument in the thesis. She has collaborated with other academic staff to research the most effective ways of teaching critical thinking to best develop critical thinking capacities in students. She is a member of the Embedding critical thinking skills in all graduates forum and Writing across the Curriculum CoP. She is also engaged in research on transition and retention matters, in particular the efficacy of intervention strategies (such as mentoring) on retention and student engagement.
