I am a creative technologist, interaction designer and a bit of a dreamer. I am working at MIT Medialab as a research assistant and currently studying the Media Arts and Sciences Master degree at the Living Mobile group.
I have a BS in Multimedia Engineering and a BA in Audiovisual Communication. During my degrees I worked at different companies such as Activa Multimedia and Solvay. I also worked at the Human Computer Interaction Department at La Salle where I started the Seamless Interaction Group along with my advisor and other students.
I later worked at Cinimod Studio as a Creative Software Engineer and Technical Manager. I was involved in several artwork creations and commercial projects working from the conception of the ideas to the final delivery presentations and installations. I managed the technical team formed by software engineers, 3D artists, electrical engineers and IT technicians.
My research is focused on trying to break the digital duality between the physical world and the real world always considering the user as the center of the interaction. I have been developing projects involving augmented reality, data visualization, tangible and social interaction.
I love coding, design and HCI but I also love writing, traveling around the world, Halley’s comet, little shinny things, Dalí’s surrealism and holding my breath underwater.
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”
