I’m a journalist and I hold a Ph.D in Human Rights (focusing on migration and diaspora) from the University of Deusto, where I developed a research with CAPES scholarship on the Basque Diaspora in Argentina focusing on Long Distance Nationalism, Transnationalism, Social Media, Cyberculture, Imagined Communities, the transatlantic and online relationship between Homeland politics and the political activity of left-wing Basque nationalist groups in Argentina and the appropriation of social media and online tools by minorities and nationalist groups for political engagement.
I’m a freelance journalist with 10 years of experience specialising in the intersection of tech and politics/human rights /development as well as international politics, human rights (racism, feminism), Spanish (particularly Basque/Catalan) and Brazilian politics, international conflicts, and minority issues. I also write about culture (particularly Latin culture), music, cinema and TV, and environmental issues.
I’ve been published by major news outlets such as Al Jazeera, Wired, MIT Tech Review, BBC, Foreign Policy, The Washington Post, Undark, OneZero, The Intercept, Vice Brasil and US, The Guardian, DW, Women’s Media Center, Remezcla, Jewish Currents, The Forward, The Brazilian Report, etc. I am also author and translator of Global Voices Online.
I hold a degree (BA) in International Relations at Pontifical Catholic University of São Paulo (from where I received a honourable mention award for my scientific initiation project in 2009 on [cyber] geography with PIBIC-CEPE/PUCSP funding) and an MA in Communication at Faculdade Cásper Líbero with a FAPESP scholarship focusing on Basque diaspora, social media, deterritorialisation and identity studies.
