In 2008, together with Kina Madno, she founded the laboratory Quimera Rosa in Barcelona. Since then, her body and research work has focused on post-identitarian gender politics and experiments on bodies, identities and technosciences from a trans*feminist perspective. Her current work focuses on the development of performances, transdisciplinary projects and interactive installations, the elaboration of devices that work with bodily activity, scientific research and biohacking experiments. Her work involves long periods of research/experimentation, usually in residencies.
