Professional activity

She currently works at L' Apò in collaboration with other designers, communicators, linguists, journalists, programmers and teachers developing social and creative communication projects, through participatory methodologies framed within the social and solidarity economy.

She combines work in the cooperative with projects that revolve around the world of design, art, and research. Her practice has to do with exploring, through design research and experimentation, alternative imaginaries to invite us to think and build spaces for reflection that allow us to imagine other ways of inhabiting the world.

In addition, she is a teacher at the University of Barcelona and at LCI, teaching different subjects in the Education Degree of the applied didactics department and in the Master's Degree in Marketing, Communication and Organization of Fashion Events.
