The quest for exploring different areas, ranging from arts to technical innovation, has taken Ricardo from Chile to Italy, to Switzerland and finally to Norway, collecting degrees in music performance, cultural management and early music on the way.

All of these fields manage to come together in his main project, an ongoing PhD research on Design and 3D-print at the Architecture and Design School of Oslo (AHO). This research builds upon Ricardo’s award-winning startup 3D Music Instruments, which operates at the cross section between 3D print technology, music, design and innovation.
