I work in the Science Communication Department of the Faculty of Sciences in the Universidad de Buenos Aires, where I work in three different areas: journalism, teaching and research in discourse analysis. I publish articles in the national newspaper La Nacion, and in a magazine that is produced in the University and is aimed to high school teachers.

I give training course in writing skills on science communication for differente audiences: general public and specialized audiences.
