“I remember playing with PowerPoint and creating presentations in elementary school, just for fun. I discovered my love of presenting in later years, while in college, and I knew it would lead to a long-term relationship.”

About me


I destroy viruses and explore the microworld because deep down I am a scientist. I am also a coach and a speaker. Since kindergarten, I have been teaching people, from helping them make new friends to helping them understand new concepts. I am a cat person who loves the sea, is not so terrible at Sudoku and loves climbing. If I tried really hard, I could probably remember most of the first 150 Pokémon off the top of my head.

I  attended many scientific and non-scientific events all around the globe where I heard and gave numerous presentations. I had presentations at well-known events such as TEDx or Scientific Slam. Consciously or unconsciously, I evaluated every lecture I have attended, picking the good parts from the bad, looking for the magic formula for a successful presentation.

On more than one occasion, I have been awarded for my presentation skills and I have co-organized workshops on how to improve your presentations at international conferences. Therefore, I would be happy to share the knowledge I have acquired and help you improve your presentation skills.
