I am a tenured researcher at the Institute of Public Policies of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) since 2006. I am member of the SPRI group on science, technology and innovation. Over the past ten years, I have developed a research line in critical science and technology studies, with a special focus on the political economy of reproductive and regenerative medicine, agro-biotechnology and synthetic biology, as well as surveillance-oriented security technologies. Always working on the complex relationship between science, technology and political economy, with a special focus on neoliberalism, I have recently opened a new research line on the relationship between society, neoliberalism and the global bioeconomy.
Specifically I have carried on research on the political and social consequences of genetic testing (BBE-GEN), on the political economy of the reproductive bioeconomy (BIOARREME), on public and civil society engagement with GMOs (PSx2), and with surveillance-oriented security technologies (PRISE and SURPRISE). Moreover, over the past four years, I have been representing Spain in the COST ACTION 1001 on Bio-objects and their boundaries. Currently, I am co-Investigator of a multidisciplinary research project led by the Monfort University on the political economy of egg donation (EDNA 2017-2020) in UK, Belgium and Spain. In the past few years, I have been visiting various international universities, such the UC Berkeley, York University, King’s College, Universidad de Chile, Maastricht University and the Universidad Nacional de Quilmes in Argentina.
