APC / SyriaUntold
I am a Madrid-based writer, communication consultant and human rights activist. I teach Communications at Carlos III University, where I am currently pursuing my PhD.

Since November 2014, I work as a Communications Officer for APC.org, a network of activists committed to supporting organizations, social movements and individuals through the use of information and communication technologies.

I am also part of the SyriaUntold team, a digital archive on the Syrian civil movement and its creative and artistic content. It was launched by a group of Syrian journalists, writers, programmers and designers based inside Syria and abroad.

I write about human rights promotion, the threats against freedom of expression and the social dimension of technology for several media such as Global Voices Online, Global Voices Advocacy, Al-Jazeera, El Mundo, and Eldiario.es.
