I’m Laura and I am a Science Communicator.
After being a researcher in applied geophysics for a few years, I decided to continue my studies and to improve my knowledge in the field of science communication. Thus, I attended the Professional Master Course in Science Communication “Franco Prattico” at SISSA (Trieste). This is way today I like telling science through magazine articles, podcasts, the organisation of festivals and events and institutional communication. Currently I work as Science Communicator at SISSA Medialab, but before that I was communication officer at the Department of Geosciences of the University of Padova (Italy) and author for the online science magazine OggiScienza. If you want to learn more, here is my portfolio (in Italian).
Before doing this I graduated with honors in Geology and Technical Geology and I earned a PhD in Earth Sciences, in both cases from the University of Padua (Italy). Then, I became a postdoc researcher in Applied Geophysics. In other words, I used to study the subsoil indirectly, trying to understand what was there without using invasive methods. A sort of treasure hunt, but without digging.
