About me

I love programming: I've known code was my thing since I was a little girl and some people on the IRC taught me that I could build talking bots. I now live in Madrid, Spain, but I have been lucky to travel and work abroad most of my professional life. I am now transitioning to a life in the countryside, where I can continue to code while being closer to other of my passions: hiking, gardening, trees and fungi. I also love music, storytelling and art.

My work

I am part of the Abstract Wikipedia team, a project that aims to create a language-independent Wikipedia using Wikidata and Natural Language Generation functions. I believe that technology is never neutral and I love bringing anti-colonial and feminist critical thinking into the tech spaces.
