Consultancy

I am currently working full-time as a postdoctoral researcher and I have discontinued my services as a consultant.


I have worked as a self-employed consultant, providing consultancy in social research and free software technologies. As a social researcher, I am specialised in providing consultancy for projects related to the areas of sharing economy, free software, common-based peer production, open data or peer-production among others. As a computer scientist, I have provided consultancy with regard to free software technologies.

I have been involved in several free software communities since 2002. I have specialised in web development using Drupal, and have been involved in the development of numerous websites. I have also been actively involved in the Drupal community, contributing in several ways (contributed modules, speaker and volunteer in the organisation of events, etc.). In addition to Drupal, I maintain an interest in learning about new and diverse free/libre technologies.

You can find below a list of websites which I have fully developed or have participated in the development of as part of a wider team. The sites can be found by clicking on the image or the title, unless they are no longer online.
