speaker.

In my science journalism art, I have been able to gather more than 35 years of wonderful experiences that I share with other people in different ways. Through seminars, talks, conferences, and workshops, I can teach, inspire, and motivate students, professors, professional journalists, and scientists. I also give talks at Colombian embassies in various countries to bring the topic of scientific diplomacy to the general public. In these talks I try to build bridges and establish contacts between science institutions, researchers, exploration programs and other initiatives that benefit Colombia and the host country.
