About

MARINA

I am a textile designer and researcher from Barcelona, currently pursuing my doctoral studies at the Royal College of Art in London, within the ArcInTex European Training Network. After obtaining a Bachelor in Textile Design (ESDi Design School) and an MA in New Media Art Curating (MECAD-ESDi), I became professor and researcher at ESDi Design School. Since 2007, I have been doing research in innovative textiles including smart textiles and wearable design. I have experience in teaching and conducting research in joint collaboration with industry and other stakeholders, developing creative workshops to get innovative products and ideas. I am interested in co-design practices where different expertise and perspectives coalesces in a common ground. More specifically, I am interested in embodied design methodologies, craft and  technology material development, ways of communicating research and Science and Technology Studies (STS).
