Curriculum Vitae

Research Interests

Communication, especially science communication, is of the utmost important in this historical moment. Estabilishing a dialogue between science and the public is fundamental to overcome the waves of misinformation or even fake info that are causing serious damage at all cultural levels. Museums and aquaria are, together with web-based communication, some of the first-line centres to raise scientific and environmental awareness in the public. This is my first line of research and action, together with museology, palaeontology of the marine environment, and historical marine ecology. I am also very involved with communicating and teaching science through gaming, i.e., the use of boardgames, roleplaying games and videogames as a very powerful tool for science communication.
