PhD student


PhD candidate in science and technology studies from Buenos Aires, Argentina, with a background in environmental science. I study the Open Science Hardware movement contribution to "democratization of science and technology in the global south" and what that means inside and outside academia, through case studies of initiatives in Latin America and Africa.

I'm an active member of the Global Open Science Hardware (GOSH) movement and its latinamerican chapter, reGOSH; and co-founder of Open Hardware Leaders, a mentorship program aiming to support young open hardware projects.

I'm also particularly interested in tools and methodologies that enable collaboration in STS research and build bridges with organizations and people outside academia; e.g. I've been exploring how to integrate Wikidata in my research, building collaborative maps and ontologies.
