As a feminist researcher, I have studied, from ethnographic perspectives, knowledge dialogues and knowledge-making practices related to techno-scientific knowledge and popular knowledge. In this work, I focused on giving account of feminized processes and practices around knowledge production. Since 2014, my research has explored handmade textile practices as technologies of knowing and caring. As a researcher, I also participate in transdisciplinary projects that place textile making, art, science and technology in dialogue with one another. These are for me spaces of exploration and permanent listening. Here are links about my latest studies:
