Bio: 

I hold a PhD in Sociology (University of Exeter), a D.E.A. in Philosophy (University of Seville) and a M.A. in Political Science (Arizona State University). I study the multifarious connections between technology, politics, and society, from the platformization of social movements, the public sphere, political parties and States to the construction and sociotechnical governance of data and digital infrastructures. I do it by entangling academic research (philosophy, political science and economy, or STS), technological development, social innovation and political action. Currently, some of the projects I am working on are OutonomyVector, Datapolitik, Tecnopolitica.cc, and Decidim. In previous years I participated in others such as DECODED-CENT and Interidentity.

I currently am coordinator of Tecnopolitica/IN3-UOC. Through the years I had the opportunity to collaborate by researching with different groups, collectives or projects, such as Heuristica.barcelona, Datanalysis15M, Ciencia, Tecnología y Racionalidad Práctica, STIR, the Center for Single Molecule Biophysics, or Calafou. He has been a Fulbright scholar and enjoyed studies or stays in different spaces, centers and universities, among them the Center for Science, Policy and Outcomes and the Center for Nanotechnology in Society, both radicated at the Arizona State University, the Colorado School of Mines, the University of Exeter, the University of Seville and the Internet Interdisciplinary Institute of the Open University of Catalonia.
