I am a third year doctoral student at ex)situ. I am interested in how creative professionals, such as designers and choreographers, express and explore their ideas from the early stages of their creative processes, and how can we design appropriable, grounded tools that push our understanding of interactive systems and interaction itself.


I got my Systems Engineering diploma from UNICEN University (Argentina, 2014), and my Masters degree in Interaction from Université Paris Saclay (France, 2015).
I worked as a teaching assistant in Computer Science at the undergraduate level (2012-2014), and in Human-Computer Interaction at the Masters level (2015-2018).
Before that, I did a 5-month internship in Inria Rennes (France, 2013).
