Interests: Having tasted academic research during my graduate studies, I later took a professional path in the direction of science communication. My passion is to develop creative and original content that contributes to the public understanding, appreciation and engagement with science. My core expertise is science writing (print and online news, press releases, featured stories, interviews, brochures, flyers, web content for scientific organization and project, etc). I also have experience in event planning for outreach (open days, science fairs, public lectures, etc). Lately, I have gained experience in coordinating planetarium productions. I am also part time employed as a Communications and Program Coordinator at the Astronomy Department at Caltech where I currently support the GROWTH project (http://growth.caltech.edu).

Activities: Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT)Zwicky Transient Facility (ZTF)
