I am the media officer for Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC). My main academic interest, for my post doctoral project, is to develop and implement communication strategies between scientists and journalists, with the ultimate objective to provide the public with correct and accessible scientific information. As Media Officer at Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência, IGC, I prepare and disseminate information national and internationally through press releases, write contents for the Web and social networks, and I am the Editor of the IGC Newsletter. I also take part in the organizing committees of outreach activities for different publics.
