What is your current role? Tell us a bit about your research
I’m currently a PhD candidate (about to defend my thesis in ~5 months) and preparing for a postdoc. I’m specialized in neurosciences, pharmacology, and biochemistry, thus “brain metabolism” and “mitochondria” usually goes together with many of my questions and answers.
What are you excited about in science communication?
I see science communication as an amazing tool to break barriers: from helping to disseminate one’s scientific research output within their scientific community through bringing a broader, general public closer to scientists and their contributions and personalities; this really inspires and excites me.
Why did you choose to participate in the ASAPbio Fellows program?
Last year I was invited by Dr. Gabriela Viçosa to contribute to an ASAPbio webinar on preprints, which introduced me to the amazing work the organization had been doing on discussing science transparency. Since then, I was eager to contribute to the community somehow, and the ASAPbio Fellows program seemed to fit quite nicely in this manner.
Ask me about…
…cooking, running, community healthcare volunteer work.
