How can I help you?
Having worked and lived in four continents and 30+ countries, I bring a unique international experience and can easily adjust to different cultures and work styles. My experience will benefit those of your projects that need to be culturally adapted.
My broad work perspective allowed me to develop skills to foster respectful collaborations with communities and governmental organizations. My expertise and academic background gave me the foundations for a rich medical knowledge and scientific rigor to cultivate peer relationships with both clinicians and bench scientists. Whether in discussion with community members, government officials or healthcare and science professionals, I will be able to adapt my communication style to best represent your organization.
Principles that guide my work:
1. Develop respectful collaborations
2. Train and empower local teams
3. Apply science-based innovative solutions
4. Keep in mind the broader impact of the work
5. Be accountable
Whether you need a speaker, moderator or panelist I will lead the discussion among a variety of groups, from small group discussions to presentations aimed at large audiences. My presentations and talks are based on a problem-based learning style, which helps the audience better understand the conclusions and will ultimately influence participants’ actions. Read more >>

Art and science are more alike than we think. Intense observation as developed by visual arts can greatly improve scientists’ observational skills. Conversely, science can bring new technologies to artists. The cross-fertilization of these two practices can lead to amazing pieces such the ones from Leonardo da Vinci. I support the integration of art in the STEM curriculum. In particular, I co-founded and mentored a class at UC Berkeley lead by group of senior undergraduates, mixing art and science. I also like to use different media to bring science closer to the general public. Read more >>
