Born in Lisbon, Portugal, I was encouraged from a young age to explore beyond boundaries. This led to a solid education in my twin interests, science and art. Throughout my career I have pursued a broad range of professional experiences, working as a science illustrator and animator, teaching, and exhibiting in an assortment of settings.

In my work I strive to inform, engage and inspire experts and non-experts alike. Using different media I interpret scientific content visually to make complex processes and concepts more approachable and to raise an appreciation for nature and science. It is in me to enthusiastically embrace new professional challenges and continuously work to expand my skills.

My doctoral studies, a dive into digital media research in museum settings, brought multidisciplinary interests together – I got to combine technology with illustration, animation and experience design for the advacement of science communication. I am currently the associate manager of graphic production at National Geographic magazine.
