I am a human geographer working at the intersection of urban, digital, and political geographies. I am interested in studying the ways human life, urban landscape, and (digital) technology are co-constructed.

So far, these interests have taken me to study the reorganization of the geographies of homelessness in Reno, NV, the antidemocratic ethos of contemporary techno-libertarian exit projects, and the strategies for digital-territorial sovereignty promoted by the Department of Digital Policies and Territory of the Catalan Government in the context of the post-2017 independence referendum.

I am also interested in cartography and GIS, looking at the possibilities offered by the incorporation of human experience, emotion, and affect into map design.
