About me

I'm a former Environmental Scientist, currently a self-taught web developer based in Barcelona with more than 3 years of experience. I'm part of the Development Team at the Catalan Ornithological Institute where we do our best to bring science projects to the web, with a special focus on citizen science apps and map-based websites.

My main interests are about how we can teach, explain and communicate science in an entertaining but also useful way, where concepts are easy to remember. Storytelling through data visualization is the base to achieve this, combined with animation and interactivity, the result might be extraordinary. I'm working on a couple of personal projects with this characteristics, so stay tuned!

Don't hesitate to contact me if you have developed a project with this terms or if you want to collaborate in some sort.
