Cristina Tulcidas (Algarve, 1990) is currently the Machine Learning Product Designer at AI Coaching GmbH. Curious, effectiveness-oriented and passionate about solving complex, deeply-human UX challenges, she thrives in building empathic solutions that will help make people’s lives better.

Her approach relies on cross-collaboration, shared values and consistent strategies. Having worked with small digital businesses to ambitious startups and international icons, earned Cristina a vast understanding of the different audiences and experience in the varied setup environments.

She believes great work comes from great partnerships; thus why mentioning a few dear fellow colleagues whom she collaborates with: Sara Rijo (Data & Machine Learning Specialist); Kelly Mestre (Fullstack Developer); Morgan Bastos (Art Director & Graphic Designer) and Inês Gonçalves (Brand & Graphic Designer).

Fun Facts

A punk-rock enthusiast, who has a penchant for the 90’s and 00’s greatest hits; loves any kind of street food; is obsessed with Daniel Sloss’s (stand-up comedy) and mother to the most beautiful italian mastiff.

She considers herself a tireless thinker, seeker of knowledge, life philosopher and self-aware introvert. Passionate about physics, philosophy and psychology and forever in love with Norway*. Life-long advocate of communication and believer of animal welfare, human rights and equality; and environmental and ecological sustainability.

Last but not least, she doesn’t believe in extreme #feminism, but more so on #inclusivity.
