I am a software engineer, interaction designer and 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 two degrees attained at two Universities in Barcelona, Spain. I first studied Audiovisual Communication at Pompeu Fabra University and later studied Multimedia Engineering at La Salle, Ramon Llull University. During my degrees I worked at different companies such as Activa Multimedia and Solvay. I also worked at the Human Computer Interaction Department of La Salle where I started the Seamless Interaction Group along with my advisor and other students.
I later worked at Cinimod Studio as a 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. I managed the technical team formed by software engineers, 3D artists, electrical engineers and IT technicians.
At MIT Medialab I am working on trying to bring my ideas to life. 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 and social interaction.
I love my research but I also love traveling around the world, Halley’s comet, little shinny things 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.”
