  • Paulina Pajarskaite

    School manager

    Originally hailing from not-so-showy Northern Europe, Paulina now calls Barcelona (and Barcelona Code School) home, where she spends her days making sure all student wishes are fulfilled. When Paulina has a spare second, she brings stories to life through great writing, and makes sure the alumni community is not bored while periodically gathering them together for meetups and career fairs.

    In between these moments Paulina can be found arguing about the impact of technology on humanity at some bar or other place you probably do not know about.

  • Sebastian Marichal


    I’m a computer science researcher with special interest in Human Computer Interaction. Currently I’m a PhD student and my main interest is to determine how physical interaction supports cognition in different contexts and through diverse interaction paradigms such as tangibles, mixed-reality and wearbles devices.

    I’ve been also working with children for my Bachelor thesis where I’ve developed a mixed-reality interface for children with cerebral palsy.

    I also enjoy DIY and taking part into creative projects. I’m always searching new projects and challenges in order to continue my personal and professional developing.
