What is your current role? Tell us a bit about your work
Over the past three years, I have worked in the biotech industry. With a background in organic chemistry and synthetic biology, I leverage my expertise to develop innovative biotech tools, biomaterials and therapeutics. I am passionate about pushing the boundaries of biotech and contributing to the development of new technologies that can improve people’s lives.
Why did you choose to participate in the ASAPbio Fellows program?
I wanted to expand my network and gain experience in the publishing sector within open science. My goal is to learn and contribute to research in open science and preprints, evaluate current models, and propose new ones. I look forward to work with other passionate individuals who share my interest in open science, and to make a meaningful contribution to the field through my participation in the program.
What are you excited about in science communication?
Science communication can have a significant impact on society by demystifying science and making it more accessible to a broader range of people. However, there is a significant challenge in the current science publishing landscape, as many scientific research articles are not open by default, resulting in a lack of access to scientific advancements for many people. I am passionate about promoting open science practices and advocating for greater access to scientific research.
