Lorena-Xiomara González-Acero (she/they), original from Bogotá, Colombia is a biologist holding a Master in Biochemistry recently in contact with Science and Technology Studies (STS). Her story starts while working in an antitumoral immunotherapy research lab, where she started wondering about what, why and how she was doing science. During her lab reflections she pursued a master degree on STS and has been developing a deeper understanding of practices, relations and interfaces involved with knowledge making. Those understandings have allowed her to dance around sociotechnical questions that then choreograph materialities. Is in the interface of these academic fields where she finds herself on the road she calls: STSing the world. She is currently a Ph.D. student in Social Sciences at the department of Philosophy, Sociology, Education and Applied Psychology of the University of Padova (Italy).
