These are my stories

My debut Novel

The novel explores the symbiosis between AI and the human soul and raises the questions of how machines and humans might live and evolve together in a not so-distant future.

In Teaching Machines How to Cry, I explore the story of Alba, a young woman seeking answers for a feeling of longing she can’t explain, and M, an AI prototype.

Alba was a child when she first spent time with M, until they were unexpectedly driven apart. As an adult, Alba slowly realises that M might hold the answers to her life-long yearning when she remembers that the last time she felt whole was as a child when she taught M how to cry.

About me

I now live in Porto with my two sons.

After living in four continents, I consider myself a citizen of the word. 

I spent most of my career working with the United Nations as a humanitarian, and as a sustainable development practitioner. In those years, I led ground-breaking work on the ethical complexities, and potentials, of artificial intelligence.
