SENAR

CAT - ES - EN - fr

I am a landscape ecologist with a passion for data visualization, graphic design, and storytelling.

I combine data analysis [R, SPSS, Sigma], cartography [ArcGIS], and graphic design [Photoshop, Illustrator, inDesign, CorelDraw] to create visual narratives designed to reach broad audiences. While my research originally focused on natural systems, it has evolved to describe human-nature interactions and social processes from a transdisciplinary perspective.

In addition, and as of September 2019, I am a Bridge Program resident [launched by SciArt Initiative], collaborating with multidisciplinary artist Tali Weinberg to explore the intersections of Arts and Sciences.
