Ha participado en varios proyectos independientes, la mayoría relacionados con la ciencia ficción, la literatura fantástica y especulativa (se considera una nerd, básicamente). Escribe ficción especulativa y ha publicado varios cuentos en distintas revistas y antologías; su trabajo ha sido traducido al italiano y al inglés. Es una de las cofundadoras del Cúmulo de Tesla @Cumulodetesla, un colectivo multidisciplinario que promueve el diálogo entre arte y ciencia, con un especial énfasis en la ciencia ficción. En 2018 formó parte de la Mexicanx Initiative, una iniciativa liderada por John Picacio. Es la primera mujer mexicana obtener una nominación a un Premio Hugo, por la edición de la antología A Larger Reality/Una realidad más amplia, adjunta al proyecto derivado de aquella iniciativa. A raíz de eso, se emocionó tanto que editó un proyecto híbrido y bilingüe de ciencia ficción: Una realidad más amplia 2.0. Un universo en el que no nos extinguimos, una antología que es también un videojuego (tipo MUD) y puede descargarse, jugarse y leerse, gratis, acá: http://alargerreality.mx/2019/
