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

During my PhD in Biochemistry at Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, I studied oxidative stress and energy metabolism, namely phosphoryl transference enzymes, in animal models of inborn errors of metabolism (IEM), focusing on the brain, and a possible interplay between redox and energy balance, also testing antioxidant interventions as adjuvant therapies for IEMs such as phenylketonuria. I am currently managing the publishing of papers related to my thesis and collaborations and working as copyeditor.

What are you excited about in science communication?

What interests me the most in science communication are initiatives toward open science to promote collaborative, reproducible, and transparent science, fostering a healthy environment to share and discuss research findings.

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

I chose to participate in the ASAPbio Fellows program to learn tools and skills to communicate with peers and a broader, diverse audience to promote the use of preprints with the support and guidance of an organized community.

Ask me about…

Theories of knowledge (I am nowhere near being an expert, but this laid the foundation of my interest in science communication).
