I received a Ph.D. in Biology and Plant Biotechnology from the Autonomous University of Barcelona in 2013. I also hold a Master in Scientific, Medical and Environmental Communication (Barcelona School of Management - Pompeu Fabra University), and a Master in European Studies on Society, Science and Technology (Maastricht University), with a specialisation in Governance, Innovation and Sustainability. Since 2018, I work in the Climate Change Impacts, Adaptation and Modelling research group (CCIAM) of cE3c and my research focuses on the interplay between science, technology, society and the environment.
For many years I have been involved in multiple science communication activities (inside and outside academia). I am currently working on the EU project ENJOI (Engagement and Journalism Innovation for Outstanding Open Science Communication). In ENJOI, I act as an Open Science manager and researcher on the following topics: i) development of standards, principles and indicators to define good practices in science journalism; ii) analysis of journalism narratives; iii) science-media relationship, and iv) creation and delivering of innovative tailor-made tools to promote critical thinking and foster media literacy of diverse target groups (media users and producers). I am also a researcher in the EU project NEWSERA (Citizen Science as the New Paradigm for Science Communication), which aims at co-designing effective communication strategies for citizen science projects through participatory workshops with 4-helix stakeholders (policymakers, industry, academia, and citizens). Previously, I worked as a postdoctoral researcher and quality assurance manager in the EU project PROSEU (coordinated by the cE3c researcher Inês Campos), where I was responsible for the Open Data strategy of the project and involved in research tasks within the PROSEU Living Labs in Portugal (i.e., co-creation activities with several stakeholders such as local communities and representatives of the industry sector).
