Bio I am a third-year PhD Candidate at the Monash Sustainable Development Institute (Australia). I hold an MSc in Creative Sustainability from Aalto University (Finland) and a BEng in Design Engineering from Universidad Panamericana (Mexico). In my research, I focus on the role of Higher Education Institutions in sustainability transformations and how the former need to change in the pursuit of the latter. I am particularly interested in understanding the potential of the SDGs as a governance framework influencing change in universities. Somehow related to my research, I am also interested in co-creative approaches for knowledge generation and collaborative and participatory design.
