As a passionate and driven historian and curator, I have gained a broad range of skills and experiences in every aspect of museum programming and communication.
My expertise spans from curating award-winning cutting-edge exhibitions that integrate science, art, and culture, to organizing events for larger audiences, documenting laboratory work on mice, and developing engaging guided tours for children.
One of my main interests has been how to communicate and display modern science in a traditional museum setting. To explore this, I have collaborated with professors, Postdocs, PhDs, and both lab and animal technicians to bring the general audience closer to the materiality of science and to raise questions about how knowledge is created. I have literally donated blood in the process of displaying how the healthcare system defines sickness and health.
