Multidisciplinary artist, PhD in Fine Arts from the Complutense University of Madrid, and researcher and teacher at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the UCM. She is currently a research member of the Research Group “Artistic Practices and New Forms of Knowledge” of the Faculty of Fine Arts of the UCM; and of the R&D Project: “Interactions of Art in the Technosphere” of the Spanish Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities (HAR2017-86608-P). She is a specialist in new strategies and contemporary artistic practices around the environmental systemic crisis and the current debates about humanity, technology and nature. His work aims to make visible the Western instrumentalization of nature space and proposes a new landscape imaginary for the Anthropocene era in which we live. His proposals, mostly produced through a multidisciplinary artistic language, have a certain investigative aesthetic halfway between art and science. He has an intense artistic career through his participation in numerous solo and group exhibitions, as well as in artistic production and research projects, both in Spain and abroad. His work is owned by museums, institutions and cultural foundations, both private and public. One of the latest research and creation grants received was the Leonardo Grant for Cultural Creators and Researchers 2017-18 (Plastic Arts Area), that the BBVA Foundation stands out. He currently enjoys (along with artist and filmmaker Raúl Alaejos) the Propuestas VEGAP 2020 Grant and the Extraordinary Grant “Matadero Creates” (2020-21) from the Centro de Residencias Artísticas de Matadero of the Madrid City Council.
