I am a professor in the School of Communication at Universidad de Costa Rica. I am also a researcher at the Centro de Investigación en Comunicación at the same institution. I obtained a PhD in Media, Technology and Society at Northwestern University (2014) under the direction of Pablo J. Boczkowski, and received my Masters in Communication (M.Sc.) from the Université de Montréal, Canada (2004).

I have authored articles in journals such as Communication Theory, Information, Communication & Society, International Journal of Communication, Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication, New Media & Society, Social Studies of Science, and The Information Society, in addition to various essays in peer-reviewed journals in Latin America. I also wrote the book, “Por un Sueño En.red.ado: Una Historia de Internet en Costa Rica” (Universidad de Costa Rica Press, 2008), the only existing monograph about the origins and historical development of the Internet in a Central American country.

I am a tico.
