Short Biography:
Trained as an industrial design engineer and media designer, I critically engage with technology in order to enable odd sympathies among people, the environment and the tecnnologies that intertwine them. Based in Lausanne and Berlin, I have participated in public events and exhibitions internationally. I develop public workshops that focus on the production of new knowledge through bio-practices, DIY, Open-Source electronics and speculative design methodology.  I nourish (from) and believe (in) communities of makers/hackers/artists working in alternative spaces to have the power to innovate and subvert the dominating role of traditional science and technology.
I hold an Engineering Degree in Product Design (Mondragón Unibertsitatea, 2008) a Post-Grade in Product Conceptualization and Development (Elisava, Barcelona, 2010) and a Master of Media Design (HEAD-Genève, 2016).

Long Version (continuation):
Influenced by ethno-fiction, feminist theory and speculative design methology, I focus on intimate  interdependencies between humans and the ecologies we are embedded in, imagining alternatives "near futures".
Hybrid researcher at Hybridoa, part of Hackuarium and satellite of the Hackteria network, I currently operate from Les Ateliers de Bellevaux (Lausanne) and Machbar/Biopunk.kitchen (Freiland / Wissenschaftladen Potsdam). I nourish from a community of doers / hackers with a sensibility to subvert the dominating role of traditional science and technology.
I organized collaborative workshops and/or discussions about speculative design, open source coding, rapid prototyping and do-it-yourself biology at Hackuarium (Ecublens, CH), Utopiana (Geneva, CH), Hackteria (International Bioart Network), Ideasquare (Cern, Geneva, CH), Medialab Prado (Madrid, ES), HEAD-Geneve (Geneva, CH), Open Fiesta (Tsinghua University, Shenzhen, CN), Open Science School (CRI Paris, Paris, FR), Bioinspired Lab (EPFL, Lausanne, CH) and Bilbao Maker Faire (Bilbao, ES) amond others.
