Hi everyone, I’m Julieta, originally from Buenos Aires - Argentina, currently based in Geneva, CH.
I’m a phd student on STS (Science & Technology Studies), in particular I study the Global Open Science Hardware movement and its contribution to democratize science and tech.
I try to apply open source philosophy to everything I do because I think it’s a more efficient way to work, and can lead to have more people involved in technology making & discussion (though it’s not always the case). Probably like most of you here, I’m worried about surveillance capitalism and the consequences it has in our lives.
Being in Geneva, I helped @paulolivier formalize some of his ideas for PersonalData.IO and identifying areas to work on and build community.
Because of my phd, I got some basic open hardware and data analysis skills, that may be helpful in this context too. Because of my activism in community environmental monitoring, I got some others like community building, workshops facilitation or grant writing (useful though I hate it).
Keen to see new collaborations arising from here
