This page has a small compilation of some efforts I have made to communicate science to different audiences including other scientists, K-12 students and the general public. Many of these are in spanish as I try to contribute to initiatives in my home country but I am always interested in being part of such projects anywhere :-)!
Contributions to SciComm initiatives

Some links to press coverage about me and my work
I have recently joined Skype a Scientist. This is a wonderful program that allows schools and families to connect with scientists working on some topic of interest for a conversation.
Here are a couple of drawings I got after a super cool conversation with 1st/3rd graders about frogs! Looking forward to more of these sessions in the near future!
For a few years I was part of an amazing program in NYC called Global Classroom. There, as a global guide I got to talk to students of different grades from the NYC public school system about sustainability and conflict in relation to Colombia, my home country. Here are some pictures of those talks
I have participated as an invited speaker in the CCNY Ecology and Evolution (Bio 228) class for undergraduates. Sharing Ecology and Evolution research with the students showcasing what we do in the department and some things they could do research in.
