My experience on the course

From the foundational perspective of the eLearning MSc, I found the program bridged posthuman theory, scholarship, and practice — that it could be applied to communication and digital ontologies involving design and architecture and environment and nature and technology. It was relevant to popular digital culture as well as experiments taking place in biological and artificial intelligence laboratories. The program became a filter for exploration and interactions with other students and was directly responsible for my continuing with Ph.D. research at the University of Edinburgh's school of architecture (ESALA).

Enrolling in the MSc was one of the best things I have ever done, it was challenging and rewarding at the same time — and, it continues to be a critical learning foundation for teaching and writing and thinking about research practices and ways of being.

What I'm doing now

I am based in Santa Fe, New Mexico and Barcelona Spain and I teach in the Bio-Digital Master Program at the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya.
