My love for science, cooking and craft lead me to pursue a PhD in chemistry but I came to realize speaking about science at large and via different media was even more thrilling for me!

Over the last years, I have been heavily involved with various science outreach and public engagement organizations, and facilitated many activities and workshops with curious people of all ages and background.

 

I am committed to increase public science literacy as well as diversity and inclusivity in science. I am convinced science is for everyone, and needs diverse perspectives.

Science is fun when well explained, and anyone can be a scientist if they want to!
