Rosa is an artist and a licensed architect. She has a BSc in Environmental Policy with Economics from the London School of Economics and an M.Arch from the Yale School of Architecture. She found her passion in fabrication at a young age and spent nights and weekends honing her creative spirit at Artisan's Asylum while pursuing and practicing architecture. Since August of 2014 she has been teaching NuVu Studio's social impact and fashion/tech studios full-time. Rosa incorporates issues related to social justice as much as possible into the industrial design and fashion studios she teaches. Her two main teaching interests are in helping students to develop interesting and generative concepts for their projects and diving into mechanical connections between materials, from fabric to 3D printed or laser cut parts and beyond. She maintains a small studio where she creates urban installations and piñatas. Rosa is on the membership committee for the Boston Society of Architects and the organizing committee for Boston Tech Poetics.
