About me

I am co-founder of PACO Design Collaborative (, Assistant Professor in Design at Universidade da Madeira (PT), and local organiser for the Global design jams in Madeira island! Actually all started in 2013 as local organiser of JaminLeeds for the Global Sustainability Jam 2013 in Leeds(UK). I was a visiting research fellow at the School of Design of University of Leeds in design thinking and collaborative learning. After a MSc in Product and Service Design, I got a PhD in design, in colour education, both at the School of Design of Politecnico di Milano (Italy). I am interested in interdisciplinary and collaborative learning processes, in design thinking in education at all levels and disciplinary areas, and in the contemporary phenomena of creative society and social creativity.
