I am staff of the popular science magazine Principia (Madrid, Spain) and the outreach project Divulcat (coordinated and edited by the Catalan Encyclopedia Foundation for the Research and Innovation, Spain). I have also participated in the British Magazine NatureVolve. I have been interviewed by newspapers, contributed with talks in outreach sessions and round tables, and with paleontology workshops for child in open-doors events and Geology Olympiads. In addition, I participate in innovative social projects which bring science close to child, senior citizens and young people with disabilities.

My participation in outreach activities has the main goal of transmitting the knowledge that I have generated and have gained to the community. I also would like to prompt STEM vocations to child and teenagers, with special interest in girls.

  • 2024. Teacher in the inclusive lab sessions with "Espazo Compartido" guys in the subject "Crysallography and Symmetry" (1st year Nanosciences and Nanotechnology). Consello Social Universidade da Coruña, A Coruña. Link.

    Espazo Compartido is a university training programme in personal and social skills and basic competencies aimed at improving employability and promoting inclusion in the labour market for young people with cognitive disabilities. This project was created to open the university space to groups that cannot access ordinary channels due to barriers in accessing higher education, promoting the inclusion of all participants and their families in the university community. Espazo Compartido is a firm commitment to university social responsibility and an example of the University of A Coruña’s commitment to society and to the right to a decent education for a group at risk of social exclusion. This is a pioneering initiative within the regional university system and one of the first at the national level. The teaching team responsible for the training programme is made up of professionals with proven experience in the field of care for people with disabilities and attention to diversity. The programme also has the collaboration of technical specialists in attention to diversity. Link.
