Space Enabled
  • Research Assistant

I am a Doctoral Student based at the Space Enabled Group in the MIT Media Lab and the Future Heritage Lab at the MIT Program in Art, Culture and Technology. I received my Bachelor’s of Sciences in Linguistics from the National University of Colombia, where I worked on articulatory phonetics, and signal processing. I did my masters with the Personal Robots group at the MIT Media Lab, where I focused on designing mechanisms to foster children's socio-emotional skills such as empathy, through interactions with social robots. Currently, I study and document Latin American ancestral technologies, as well as the design practices that led to their existence. I use insights from this work to propose design practices and philosophies that can lead to the development of more sustainable and just technologies.
