Biografía

I joined the Internet Society in June 2017, and am now the Senior Manager of Fellowship Programs. I oversee the design, development, implementation, and management of programs that empower and equip Internet champions to become inclusive, innovative, holistic-minded, and strategic Internet leaders. These programs include the Early Career Fellowship, the Mid Career Fellowship, the IGF Youth Ambassador Program, and the alumni program.
 
Before joining the Internet Society, I coordinated marketing operations, executed global marketing campaigns, and led eLearning programs at Dassault Systèmes, a multinational corporation that provides business and people with virtual universes to imagine sustainable innovations capable of harmonizing product, nature, and life. Before that, I worked at the European Chemical Region Networks in Brussels, where I helped the organization facilitate interregional cooperation and policy development by advocating for a strong regional dimension in the EU policy agenda.

I hold a Master’s degree in International Strategic Management from the University of Paris, and two Bachelor's degrees—in Economics and in Business Administration and Management—from the University of Oviedo in Spain and Maastricht University in The Netherlands. I am also a certified PRINCE2Project Manager.

I am passionate about empowering people, building relationships, fostering collaborations, and identifying opportunities to keep developing the Internet, ensuring that it remains open, globally connected, and secure.
 
I love dancing, nature, and traveling. I have lived in five countries—Spain, The Netherlands, Belgium, France, and Switzerland—and I am fluent in English, Spanish, French, and Italian. I am based in Geneva, Switzerland.
