I'm a neuroscientist by training, experienced in bio-medical research, genetics and behavioural analysis of mouse models of psychiatric diseases. I'm devoted to science communication, particularly by public speaking and visual presentations, and currently I work for the EU project RD-Connect, dealing with rare genetic diseases. The project finishes in 2018 and from January/February 2019 I would welcome a new employment opportunity. Besides, I'm interested in visual media and global health, particularly noncommunicable diseases.
