Camila Valenzuela Moguillansky studied Biology at the University of Chile. She finished a master in cognitive science at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales in Paris. Her PhD research, at the University Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris VI), focuses on the relationship between body awareness and pain experience integrating third-person (techniques from experimental psychology) and first-person (phenomenological approach based on interview techniques) methodologies. Her concern on body awareness does not remain only an object of study, but rather integrates a long-term experience as a dancer and yoga practitioner. These practices inspired, in fact, her interest in studying the relationship between consciousness, body awareness and pain.
