I work on co-design methodologies and Agile frameworks for research processes and for the development of digital Commons at the Dimmons Research Group (Internet Interdisciplinary InstituteUOC), and I’m a visiting Fellow at the CECAN research centre (University of Surrey).

Member of the Platoniq collective, co-founder and project manager at the platform Goteo.org for civic crowdfunding, where I specialised in facilitating collaborative knowledge management, learning methodologies and co-creation strategies for civic impact.

I have been vice-president of the Observatory for CyberSociety and associated professor of Software Studies at the Open University of Catalonia, where I hold a Master’s Degree in the Information and Knowledge Society. I’m a certified Scrum Master by the Scrum Alliance, a facilitator role I have been implementing for different international projects, like Europeana Creative or the Connected Action for the Commons network (European Cultural Foundation).

I have also worked as a coordinator of the City and Collaboration department at Citilab-Cornellà and as online content coordinator of the Infonomía network, as well as implemented eLearning projects and open educational resources for various institutions, like the Government of Catalonia or the Mozilla Foundation.
