What I do .

While a main part of my career is dedicated to research, I am deeply motivated to promote scientific literacy to students, teachers, and the general public, so that people can enhance their scientific understanding and, altogether, we can make a difference and make our way to a better world. I regularly participate in initiatives promoted to disseminate science to the regular public, such as ISPA Summer School (for high-school students); European Researchers’ Night; activities promoted by the National Network of Science Centers (Ciência Viva), directed to primary school students; seminars; interviews to Tv; among other invitations. I have also the privilege to collaborate in a project aiming to make a memorable contribution to every kids’ life, the KIDS DIVE project (www.kidsdive.pt).
