Creative communication and event production

ecology biodiversity communication science communication event production

I'm an ecologist, science communicator and event producer dedicated to the promotion of scientific literacy in dialogue with education and culture.

PhD student at the Tropical and Mediterranean Biodiversity group, I'm also member of cE3c's communication office dedicated to its creative activities, strategic positioning, dissemination and communication of science, namely through the contact with media, content production for different communication channels, organization of national and international events and initiatives, and support to fundraising.

Master in Conservation Biology by the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon (primate population and conservation genetics), and postgraduate in Ecology and Environmental Management on the same institution. During this time, I also developed skills in event production and science communication that led me to win the audience award at the FameLab Portugal 2017 final, and to be invited to host the final of FameLab Portugal 10-year commemorative edition.

I worked at the Portuguese Ecological Society (SPECO) under supervision of Maria Amélia Martins-Loução, where I was responsible for the institutional communication and the LTER network communication and outreach (2017-2019). In 2018, I became part of the team that brought the international festival Pint of Science to Portugal, representing the initiative as national Vice-President and Lisbon edition coordinator for two years (2018-2019). In 2020, I co-founded Sencência, a start-up focused on the triad science-culture-education, being its Scientific Director (CSO) until 2022, and FIC.A - International Science Festival, the first and only portuguese-made science festival.

I'm currently represent the Tropical College of the University of Lisbon (CTROP), as communication manager (2020-); FIC.A - International Science Festival, as Scientific Director (2020-); SPECO, as member of the national board (2020-), where I coordinate the Network for Communication and Dissemination of Ecology; Liga para a Protecção da Natureza (LPN), as member of national board (2019-), the oldest environmental NGO in the Iberian Peninsula, where I supervise the communication, education and training departments; and the Portuguese Ethological Society, as member of the national board (2022-).

In july 2022, together with Maria Amélia Martins-Loução, we edited the book Reaching everywhere: Ecology in the 21st Century ("Um Pouco por Toda a Parte: a Ecologia no Século XXI").
