My background is in industrial design. I obtained my BA from Universidad de Los Andes in Colombia. Following this, I completed my advanced studies at the MSc. program ‘Design for Interaction’ of Delft University of Technology (TUDelft), the Netherlands with Cum Laude degree. I received my PhD in Human-Computer Interaction at the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering, TUDelft. After graduating, I worked as a post-doctoral researcher.

Research and education have been for me a journey of discovery, of who I am, the world around me, and my contribution to society. This journey so far has opened the doors to share and implement my design perspectives and tools across cultures with an interdisciplinary focus. I work closely with TUDelft in The Netherlands, Beijing Normal University in China, and The Hong Kong Polytechnic University in Hong Kong.
