I hold a MSc in Computer Engineering by the Universidad Complutense de Madrid and a PDEng in User System Interaction by the University of Eindhoven. I have professional experience as HCI researcher and currently I am pursuing a PhD in Methods for Public Design.


I am interested in participatory approaches to design, how they can enact the articulation of collective matters of concern and support or facilitate the creation of publics.
