I'm a postdoctoral researcher in science and technology studies, interested in how open source and a philosophy of the commons can transform the way we do science and technology. During the PhD my work has focused on understanding open science hardware in the Global South in terms of movement building. I'm now funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to conduct a case study of the OpenFlexure Microscope, doing fieldwork in the UK at University of Bath, and in Tanzania at the Ifakara Health Institute. I'm a member of the Gathering for Open Science Hardware (GOSH), with whom I have written policy recommendations and other community documents; I co-founded the Latin American Free/Libre technologies for science and education (reGOSH) and I co-organise "Open Hardware Makers", a training and mentorship program for open hardware developers. I often work as a consultant for the Appropedia Foundation on documentation workflows for open hardware and innovation, and more recently I was consulted for the UNESCO 2021 Recommendation on Open Science. My main interest now is in developing strategies and tools for open hardware support by research policy.
