Summary

"The ways we communicate science in our society are constantly evolving. Modern tools are making this an exciting and unique time for the transmission of new ideas. I want to be part of this new wave of specialists, towing the line between science and the rest of the world." 


At the moment, I'm the newly appointed science communication officer at Agent Majeur, Paris (www.agentmajeur.com). I write, translate, train or advise on a diverse range of projects, with people from all walks of science. My main role is serving as an intermediary between researchers and non-scientists, helping them to get their point across as effectively as possible.


But otherwise, I'm also an ex-laboratory scientist, molecular biology PhD, on-screen science expert on TV, researcher for TV behind the scenes and science writer for the web. Long story short, I'm obsessed with talking science to both people who love it and those who couldn't care less.
