I'm a designer with foundations in microeconomics and sociology. I'm interested in using Participatory Design methods to design technological applications closely with the communities that are going to use them, and to sit down with the people and understand the multiple layers where technology intersects with power relations in society.
The question is then, how do we use the potential of technology to challenge oppressive power structures? How do we critically engage with technology in its material dimension (not as something intangible and difficult to understand), in order to see political positions in action and strengthen communities?
WHAT DO I DO? - I conduct workshops using methods of participatory design and critical pedagogy. I enjoy working with young people to open spaces for discussion, reflection and experimentation. - Writing in English and Spanish is an exercise of articulating my thoughts and reflections, and make them available to many others. - I participate in events and expert committees in the areas of Gender and digital technologies. - I´m currently working on developing pedagogies for communicating sciences to the public and engage in dialogues about its discourses of power.
