My name is Lidia Zuin. I am a Brazilian freelance journalist and researcher in futurology/futurism with a MA degree in semiotics and PhD in visual arts. I write columns for the Brazilian websites TAB UOL and Futuro das Coisas, and I frequently translate my production at my Medium profile. I have been writing and publishing short science fiction stories for about 10 years and I have been dedicating my career to research in emergent technologies and consumer behavior alongside different companies such as Envisioning, UP Lab, and Disruptive Futures Institute. I'll be publishing two books in the near future and I'm looking forward to moving to Europe very soon!
