  • Biography

    I grew up in Southeastern Brazil, inspired by nature on my grandparents’ farm and summer camps in the local zoo. My passion for nature motivated me to become a field biologist and led me to a career path in academic research and higher education. I have dedicated over 15 years to help college students connect their curiosity about nature to science, guiding them through the transformative path of critical thinking. I believes that such transformation, however, should not be restricted to colleges, but accessible to everyone.

    In 2018, I chose Connecticut to be my new home, and non-formal science education and outreach to be my new career. I currently serve on the Board of the Connecticut Outdoor & Environmental Education Association and have been supporting outdoor education as the perfect format to stimulate kids’ and adults’ curiosity about nature and connect them to science.

    In 2020, I joined the Neighborhood Leadership Program from the Community Foundation for the Greater New Haven. Inspired by the stories and actions of so many community leaders, I decided to found the Science Yourself initiative as a way to celebrate, connect, and support professionals and community members that value science literacy, critical thinking, and science-based programs in the Greater New Haven area and across Connecticut.
