I'm originally from Portugal and after island hopping Manhattan and Singapore, I am currently
living in Newcastle, UK while working towards my PhD at Open Lab.

My practice research includes designing interactions and prototypes as catalysts for discussion,
mainly on topics of taboo. My long-term research goal is to design technologies that can assist
social justice pursuits and have the potential to vastly improve women’s experiences in health
transactions, choices, and rights.
I am interested in designing interventions that employ creative methods of research and
technologies that can contribute to making topics that are sensitive, alas fundamental, accessible;
have a real impact in real lives and promote positive wellbeing.

++ I like crafting e-textiles and wearables, comics and graphic novels, science and nature, and
mostly anything that involves traveling.
