I have spent the last decade applying engineering and research principles to find solutions in sustainable materials and manufacturing. Today, I am dedicated to bringing my experience, goals, and skills to the development of products, services, and systems that fit the circular economy and sustainability models. I enjoy seeing my work, side projects, and hobbies through the lens of science, engineering, and sustainable development.

In August 2023, joint Light House as their circular innovation lead. There, I integrate circular design principles into projects, products, and services that support the sustainable development of the construction sector in British Columbia. I do so by fostering innovation and collaboration among partners. In my free time, I help my friends at Wonderflux with some of their technical and innovation challenges.

Between July 2022 and August 2023, I led the product development efforts at ABC3D, where I was responsible for the operational and managerial aspects of product development based on post-industrial feedstock. From January 2020 to November 2021, I was a research fellow at the Sustainable Materials and Manufacturing Group, part of the Warwick Manufacturing Group at the University of Warwick, in England.

In 2019, I received a Ph.D. in Materials Engineering from the University of Alberta, in Canada, while working with the Elias Research Group, and in 2015, an M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering from the same university, under the supervision of André McDonald, Ph.D., B.S. Law, P. Eng. I joined this program in 2013, soon after receiving my undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering from the National University of Colombia in 2012.
