What is your current role? Tell us a bit about your research

I’m a molecular biologist and neuroscientist working as a postdoc in Berlin Institute for Medical Systems Biology (BIMSB). In our lab we are specially excited about understanding early stages of neurodegeneration by integrating multi-scale imaging techniques: from single-molecule to functional imaging.

Why did you choose to participate in the ASAPbio Fellows program?

Currently preprints and preprint review are gaining more and more importance in the field of life sciences, thanks to huge efforts from individuals and platforms like ASAPbio. I believe it is an important moment to join and contribute. By joining the ASAPbio Fellows program, I aim to understand better how the preprint landscape works, get more involved in the community and contribute to stablishing them as an everyday essential tool for every scientist.

What are you excited about in science communication?

I find open science is a fundamental topic in the discussion on how we want to shape the current and future research culture. There is no open science without science communication. To reach out and communicate our work is one of the first steps towards democratizing science and breaking accessibility barriers towards including every minority scientific (and non-scientific) community.
