En Español: si está buscando información veraz sobre el COVID-19 en Colombia y LatAm, estoy creando esta recopilación de fuentes acreditadas para el tema, por favor difunda! https://tiny.cc/Covid19Colombia

I’m a science journalist for Spanish-speaking outlets in Colombia and USA. I write about biology, health, basic research, #OpenScience, science policy, science in Latin America and Europe and, lately, #COVID19 among other topics. Please find some examples of my work at the end of this text.

Briefly, this is what I do:

  • Science journalism: writing pieces on scientific issues for traditional media (English or Spanish);
  • Create science communication materials (for web, video, audio and printed formats) and organise outreach activities such as science cafes, seminars, talks, workshops, etc;
  • Tailored communication strategies to the general public or to especializad audiences.

My work in science communication is to help scientists to communicate their research to lay and specialised audiences. I propose a clear 
showing and communicating 
results and the science behind the research. I help to identify the key aspects to be told, create and develop a story and, finally, measuring its impact.

To do this I 
with scientists, press offices, marketing and communication managers, IT teams, journalists and media producers, agencies, designers and programmers, 

I also offer science communication strategies aimed to help research institutes and scientists to effectively communicate their results. I’ve also worked on the Impact / ‘Communication and Dissemination activities‘ sections for Horizon 2020 projects by creating, implementing and reporting (mid-term and final) a communication strategy for the projects 4DHeart, ScienceSquared, CommHERE and EuroStemcell.
