Current Research:

I am investigating the relationship between Curating and Cultural Management in Art, Science and Technology. I have participated in a study/work program at MA Media Art Histories, Donau University, Krems, Austria, that brought me to publish in different magazines and journals (Digicult Magazine, PJIM Parsons Journal of Information Mapping). I have participated in international conferences and panels (ISEA International Symposium on Electronics Arts, MOTA Museum of Transitory Art) and developed curatorial exhibitions in collaboration with museums and galleries (MACBA Museum of Contemporary Art Barcelona, MAC Museum Contemporary Art Bogota). I have received the Grant for Research and Development, International Lifelong Learning Program, European Commission, General Directorate for Education and Culture, promoted by Universitat Ramón Llull to develop a program of entrepreneurship in London. I have also graduated with an MA in Curating and Cultural Practices in Art and New Media from MECAD Media Centre Art and Design, where I designated a research project that concluded in an exhibition at the Arts Space Barcelona.

Research Ambition:

My primary goal is to graduate as an MPhil researcher at CRiSAP – University of Arts London. This research is imperative to develop a career in Curating and Cultural Management in Art, Science and Technology. The studies at CRiSAP, UAL, will provide excellent and indispensable training in this field. This program prepares me to develop a promising international career.
