Bio

I am a Research and policy officer at the Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology, and Society (TILT) in the Global Data Justice project. I am a historian from the Universidad del Rosario (Colombia) with an M. A. in Sociology from Bielefeld University (Germany). Before joining Tilburg University, I worked for four years at Fundación Karisma, a Colombian civil society organization working on human rights in digital mediated technologies. My work was to research the impacts of data-intensive systems on the fundamental rights of vulnerable communities. My areas of expertise include the data systems used for social assistance, biometric identification systems for vulnerable migrant, and international development on ICTs.
