About Me


Hi there. I am a PhD candidate in the Philosophy Section of the BMS Faculty. My research analyses the use and appropriation of Internet platforms by environmental activists. By bridging philosophy of technology to political theories, I draw connections between Internet-enabled Climate Activism Networks (e.g. Extinction Rebellion, Fridays for Future, Futuros Indígenas) to new technopolitical regimes. With this approach, I aim to show the political significance of technologies in the evolution of social and ecological movements. 

My project is part of the Ethics of Socially Disruptive Technologies (Esdit) consortium, where I contribute to the research lines of 'The Future of a Free and Fair Society' and 'The Human Condition.' Within Esdit, I am also an active member of the Intercultural ethics track, which underscores the relevance of philosophical traditions outside of the Western canon to understand and address global challenges.
