About

I’m a science communicator with a background in biology.  I help scientists to communicate their research to lay and specialized audiences. My work consists in proposing a clear 
and 
simple 
way 
of 
showing and communicating 
the 
information produced by scientists, research institutions or private companies. I help to identify the key aspects to be told, create and develop a story and, finally, measuring its impact.

Right now I’m a freelance based in Brussels working for clients everywhere, from England and Spain to USA and Colombia.

I have a BS in Biology, an MSc in Science Communication and another one in History of Science. Briefly, this is what I do:

  • Tailored communication strategies to the general public or to especializad audiences;
  • Digital communication strategies
  • Create and manage press and other media relations
  • Organise outreach activities such as science cafes, seminars, talks, workshops and any other kind of science dissemination activities.
  • Science journalism: writing pieces on scientific issues for traditional media, in english or spanish.

I 
work 
closely 
with scientists, press offices, marketing and communication managers, IT technicians, journalists and media producers, agencies, designers and programmers, 
to 
carry 
out 
the
 production 
and 
editorial 
phases 
of 
the 
projects.

I offer science communication strategies aimed to help research institutes, scientists and PR offices to effectively communicate their results. I also have experience creating and running the ‘Communication and Dissemination activities‘ for Horizon 2020 projects.

I’ve worked by creating, implementing and reporting (mid-term and final) a communication strategy for the projects CommHERE, EuroStemcell, 4DHeart and ScienceSquared (here only proposal and implementation).  Also, I’ve participated as communication advisor for several H2020 projects such as SystemTB and Geuvadis.

I also have extensive experience organising outreach activities such as Science cafes with the CRG:

On the other hand I also work as a freelance science journalist for media outlets in (for the moment, others will come) Colombia and USA. Here are some samples of my work:
