Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Epistemology
  • Linguistics
  • Artificial intelligence

Her primary scientific interests are in Conceptual change, Epistemology, Science education, Concept learning and Presupposition. Stella Vosniadou combines subjects such as Scientific theory and Learning sciences with her study of Conceptual change. Her work in the fields of Epistemology, such as Conceptual system, intersects with other areas such as Restructuring.

Stella Vosniadou has included themes like Flat Earth, Developmental psychology, Construct, Scientific modelling and Spherical Earth in her Presupposition study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Ontology, Mental representation, Conceptual framework and Conceptual model in addition to Construct. Her Pedagogy study combines topics in areas such as Mathematics education and Logical reasoning.

Her most cited work include:

  • Similarity and analogical reasoning (1613 citations)
  • Mental Models of the Earth: A Study of Conceptual Change in Childhood (1238 citations)
  • Capturing and modeling the process of conceptual change. (1055 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

Her primary areas of investigation include Conceptual change, Mathematics education, Epistemology, Cognitive science and Cognitive psychology. Her studies in Conceptual change integrate themes in fields like Concept learning, Science instruction, Science education and Construct. Stella Vosniadou focuses mostly in the field of Science education, narrowing it down to topics relating to Learning sciences and, in certain cases, Cooperative learning.

Her Presupposition and Conceptual framework study, which is part of a larger body of work in Epistemology, is frequently linked to Function, bridging the gap between disciplines. Her Cognitive science study incorporates themes from Analogy and Analogical reasoning. Her work in Cognitive psychology addresses subjects such as Cognitive development, which are connected to disciplines such as Learning theory, Comprehension and Knowledge acquisition.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Conceptual change (49.69%)
  • Mathematics education (21.47%)
  • Epistemology (20.86%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Conceptual change (49.69%)
  • Epistemology (20.86%)
  • Mathematics education (21.47%)

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Her primary areas of study are Conceptual change, Epistemology, Mathematics education, Science education and Cognitive science. The Conceptual change study combines topics in areas such as Cognitive development, Science instruction, Cognitive psychology and Perspective. Stella Vosniadou combines subjects such as Theory of mind and Narrative with her study of Epistemology.

She has researched Mathematics education in several fields, including Fraction and Curriculum. Her Science education research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Concept learning, Knowledge management and Media studies. Her Cognitive science research incorporates themes from Database, Enriched text, Analogy, Analogical reasoning and Conceptual system.

Between 2012 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • International handbook of research on conceptual change (434 citations)
  • Conceptual Change from the Framework Theory Side of the Fence (78 citations)
  • The representation of fraction magnitudes and the whole number bias reconsidered. (68 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Linguistics
  • Epistemology
  • Artificial intelligence

Her scientific interests lie mostly in Conceptual change, Mathematics education, Science instruction, Belief system and Science education. Her Conceptual change study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cognitive development, Cognitive psychology and Perspective. In her research on the topic of Mathematics education, Self-management, Set and Learning theory is strongly related with Curriculum.

Her work deals with themes such as Text comprehension, Science history and Reading, which intersect with Science instruction. Her research in Science education intersects with topics in Epistemology, Reading comprehension and Prior learning. Her Epistemology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Concept learning and Learning sciences.
