She is a design practitioner and a doctoral student at Aalto University, school of Arts, Design and Architecture. In the last decade, her areas of research and design practice have revolved around exploring the possibilities and limits of transformative and participatory design practices advancing creative explorations, socio-economic inclusion and public imagination.

During the last four years, she worked as a public servant in the Mexico City’s government with women and children living in marginalized neighborhoods, creating alternative and collective tactics for the re-appropriation of public –but contested– city spaces. Currently her doctoral research focuses on spatial justice and feminist approaches to design, as well as in the social reproduction of exclusion in civic and urban life.
