I am a professor at CITM, Polytech University of Catalonia’s (UPC) center for image and multimedia studies. I’m finishing my PhD at the University of the Arts in Helsinki, investigating Artificial Intelligence and Visual Arts.

I teach courses related to creative AI at Elisava and other institutions. I develop projects with creative and social use of technology, cooperating with non-profits such as Coolab,, and Dweb.

I have created projects in a wide variety of supports such as mobile apps, installations and fiction feature films. I taught in the Art and Technology School Oi Kabum! in Rio de Janeiro for 6 years, and run the Nuvem laboraroty for art and technology, in the countryside of Brasil, for 5 years.
