    Lucía Cores Sarría is a fourth year PhD candidate pursuing a joint degree in Media and Cognitive Science. She uses experimental methods to study moving images. Her current research focuses on how cinematography, such as the distance, the movement or the angle of the camera affect the way we perceive films. Her perspective on media is informed by ecological psychology and embodied cognition theory.

    Lucía received her joint B.A. degree in Journalism and Audiovisual Communication from Carlos III University of Madrid, and her M.A. degree in Cognitive Semiotics from Aarhus University. She is pursuing her PhD with the support of a Fulbright Scholarship.
