Science Writer

About Me

Let's face it, I will always be a scientist, that is how I see the world. But ever since I can remember, I write about it with the words of a storyteller.
During my PhD years, writing online articles was my way to build bridges between the Sciences and the Public.

This need for communication led me to take some time out to travel around France and learn about food production and French traditions.

Today I write scientific content on demand for different audiences, in English, French, and Spanish. 

I have recently written about Diabetes Healthcare in France (in French and English) for a big pharmaceutical company. 

But I also write about Nutritional behaviour, including traditional and family food consumption, and work for causes I care deeply about like Nutritional Health, Environmental Protection, the Preservation of Ancient Trades, and Science Popularization and Literacy.
