Biography:
I recently earned my M.S. in International Affairs, a degree I pursued while fulfilling my professional duties as a diplomat representing the Government of Ecuador. I am particularly interested in work that explores community resilience, civic participation enabled by ICTs, and citizen-driven innovation ecosystems. Ultimately, I seek to better understand how to promote civic engagement and technology practices that foster the inclusive socio-economic development of Latin American communities.
