Patricia Teixidor Monsell

Scientific Officer

A primatologist by training, I am a science communicator by passion and practice.

My main goal nowadays is to put together my two assets —scientific background and more than 10 years’ experience in the Publishing world as editor— in helping scientists to communicate their discoveries to the general public.

I am passionate about engaging scientists in new ways to enhance their outreach skills, such as through videos or other media formats.

As Scientific Officer, I assist in proposal submission, coordinate scientific events, proofread and format scientific papers, manage crowdfunding campaigns through social media and input of key data from SNSF curricula.

I like walking in the woods fantasizing with how great apes might have seen the world and thrive!
