I am an environmental scientist with a Masters degree in Integrated Environmental Analysis from the Federal University of São Paulo (UNIFESP). I grew up wanting to be a journalist, but I wound up a scientist due to my curiosity of our natural world. I am the type of person who needs to know why mold appears on bread or why the stars shine with different colors and intensities. Since I understand that I will never be able to know about everything, I decided to focus my research on the microscopic world. My master's degree research was on methanotrophic bacteria, microorganisms that consume atmospheric methane (one of the main contributors to the greenhouse effect driving global warming when in excess in the atmosphere). These bacteria may also produce polymers that can be used as raw material for the manufacture of biodegradable plastics. Today I seek to unite my two passions - journalism and science - through science communication. I am not a biologist, marine biologist, or oceanographer; I'm afraid of the open sea, and when I think about submarines or ship cabins I begin to feel claustrophobic. However, throughout my internship and my scientific initiation in the Oceanographic Institute - USP, I was introduced to this new world, and once again, the curiosity took over me. What secrets do the oceans hide? Let’s have a chat and figure that out together!
