Gabriel Cavalli

LITE Director
Leeds Institute for Teaching Excellence

I am originally a polymer chemist from Uruguay (BSc, MRes Uruguay, PhD Imperial College London) but always been interested in education and the overlap between research and education but also between subject identity and wider scholarly inquiry.

I have been involved in teaching and learning in Higher Education since 1993, in a variety of roles and settings in Uruguay, the UK and China.

I was the founding Director of the International Centre for Teaching and Learning at Queen Mary University of London’s joint Queen Mary Engineering School of NPU (Xi’an, China) and the founding Director of the QMUL Faculty of Science and Engineering's Centre for Academic Inclusion in Science and Engineering (CAISE).

I am extremely interested in the role of language in learning and how this shapes issue of academic and disciplinary inclusion for learners. As Director of LITE I am driven by championing evidence-based student education strategies and the impact of pedagogical research and Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL).
