Critical thinking on the relationship between technology and humans in Artificial Neural Networks and surveillance was the focus of my bachelor's in Philosophy and master's in Communications, with theoretical interests in Herbert Marcuse and Walter Benjamin. Marcuse's theory on the aesthetical dimension attempted to address the problem of form and content based on the ideas of Marx and Freud. Benjamin's concept of sensorium, while not frequently mentioned in his writing, is nevertheless powerful in understanding his analysis of the relationship between humans and technology, particularly in the case of visual technologies as aesthetical experiences.

During my second master's degree in Digital Humanities, I had the opportunity to engage in both theoretical and practical strategies to think about controlling and surveilling the relationship between humans and machines, with a focus on artificial neural networks classification models. In my current pursuit of a PhD in Computational Media, Arts, and Cultures, I have proposed a philosophical inquiry into the epistemological and ontological dimensions of classification, understood as a political practice of colonialism and capital extractivism.

I am currently a PhD student in Computational Media, Arts, and Cultures at Duke University. My research focuses on the classification data practices used in artificial neural network technologies. I am exploring the intersection of philosophy, practical reflections on adversarial technologies, visual studies, and onto-epistemologies from the Global South.
