About me

I am a Consulting Manager at International Data Corporation (IDC Canada), working on tech market intelligence and advisory services conducting research and analysis on leading-edge information technologies (cloud computing, security, artificial intelligence), helping clients and organizations to upscale their digitial transformation.

I volunteer as a member of the Multi-Stakeholder Forum on Open Government of the Government of Canada, advising the implementation and assessment of the Open Government National Plan 2022-2024. I also volunteer as advisor in the Canadian Center for Non-Profit Digital Resilience as a matter expert on digital policies: trustworthy artificial intelligence, disinformation, data privacy, transparency.

I have been a Senior Researcher at the Digital Democracies Institute of the School of Communication at the Simon Fraser University (SFU), with Professor Wendy Chun. My work was focused on disinformation, digital policies and digital government.

I have been Visiting Scholar at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University in 2020 working with the Misinformation Working Group with Jonas Kaiser, and MediaCloud with Fernando Bermejo.

I have been a Visiting Scholar at the Digital Media, Networks and Political Communication (Dimenet) research group at the Annenberg School for Communication of the University of Pennsylvania in 2017, with Professor Sandra González-Bailón. At the Dimenet I have been working with network science, data mining and political communication for my Ph.D.

I have also been Visiting Scholar at the Public Opinion & Media Lab (Pomlab) and Voices from the Blogs of the University of Milan in 2017, with Professors Mauro Barisione, Luigi Curini and Andrea Ceron. At the Pomlab and Voices I worked with content and sentiment analysis for my Ph.D.

I have a Ph.D. in Political Communication from the European University Institute (EUI), under the Supervision and guidance of Professor Alexander Trechsel. My Ph.D. dissertation explored and analyzed the interactions’ networks of users under Twitter hashtags of European relevance, as well as its content. The project strived to complement the literature of the European Public Sphere from an innovative computational social sciences approach. I was awarded Best Thesis in Political Communication from the Spanish Association of Political Communication (ACOP) (2018-2019).

I speak several languages: Catalan, Spanish, English, Italian, and Swedish.
