I am an Astrophysicist working on Science Education and Outreach, based at the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias, in Tenerife, Spain. In my work, I combine the practice of scientific popularization, via public talks, workshops, courses and development of educational materials, with the research of Astronomy as an innovative tool to bring science closer to society and as a driver for development. I'm particularly interested in the scholar public, that is primary and secondary students and teachers.
