Hello! I'm Catalina.
I am Design Researcher, facilitator and project lead.
My work lies at the intersection of Design, Technology and Society. I explore the complexity of socio-technical systems, and design ecosystems that bring the realities of people at the center of the creative process. I do this in various ways:
I enjoy working in close contact with communities through participatory design processes, conducting academic and non-academic research and crafting pedagogies for expanding dialogues in the classroom or elsewhere.
I complement my professional practice in research and strategy with graphic design, visual thinking and illustration. I am particularly interested in supporting projects engaged with gender, policy and digital technologies in the Global South.
MFA in Arts, Technology and Emerging Communication
BA in Design with emphasis in product and communication design
