Knight Science Journalism Fellow at MIT. I am an independent science journalist in Argentina with 15 years of experience writing about the intersections of science and literature (especially pop culture) and how the arts feed back into scientific research. I write about science, technology, and culture for popular science magazines such as Undark (MIT), Scientific American, Agencia Sinc (Spain), Tec Review (México), Muy Interesante Argentina, Quo México, Le Monde Diplomatique. Previously, I was in charge of the science section of national newspapers like Página/12, Crítica, and Revista Ñ, the cultural magazine of Clarín newspapers. In addition to my writing, I have produced many science TV shows for Discovery Channel, Tecnópolis TV and NatGeo Latin America. I am the author of two books: “All You Need to Know about Science” and “The Bathrooms Weren’t Always Like This.” I am also member of the Argentinian Network of Science Journalism (RADPC) and of the National Association of Science Writers. During my year at Harvard and MIT, I specialized in history of sciences and STS (Social Studies of Science).

Winner of the 2011 Science Public Communication Award (journalism) of the Argentine Ministry of Science.

I was invited to attend three World Science Journalism Conferences: Doha (Qatar), Helsinki (Finland), Seoul (South Korea) and the Kavli Prize Ceremony (Oslo, Norway).
