Biography

/Overview/
Since 2005, when I've launched a hardware tech think tank, I’ve been exploring things that connect technology, data and society. Over my journey, I worked on tech projects, companies and labs, screened products and teams, helped to create public policies, evangelized computer science and technology in different corners of the world from North America to APAC or Africa. My involvement taps tech ecosystems, programs, institutions, initiatives (MIT, Singularity University, 500 Startups, Techstars etc) and multilateral organizations (World Economic Forum, European Commission).
