Electorate – Americas and Africa

I am a science communication researcher at the State University of Campinas-Unicamp, in Brazil. I have worked as a science journalist and editor, and I have developed many public outreach activities. My efforts are focused on increasing public access to knowledge through social media and open access. I won the Junior Award at PCST-2006 and co-organized the PCST 2014 Conference in Brazil. I am currently working as a visiting scholar at Simon Fraser University-SFU, Canada.
