DAVI BONELA| Brazilian, 30 years old. I am an editor, journalist and media professional with experience in the areas of education, science, culture and health.

Currently, I am researcher at the Museum of Tomorrow, a science museum located in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, which explores the ever-changing times we are witnessing and the possible paths we may take during the next fifty years. Before, I worked at Oswaldo Cruz Foundation – Fiocruz, Brazilian Academy of Sciences and other institutions related to scientific research and communication.

As journalist, I have been covering international events about global challenges hosted in Brazil, for instance, the United Nations Conference Rio+20, World Science Forum and General Assembly of Global Network of Science Academies. I have also been producing news, interviews and articles – some of them translated into several languages -, as well as exhibitions, books, tv shows, documentaries and seminars.

Close to reach ten years of experience in science communication, I achieved two opportunities to improve skills in European institutions. In 2017, I was a selected as a non-European fellow of Ettore Majorana Foundation and Centre for Scientific Culture to participate of the International Science Journalism and Communication Program, in Italy. In 2018, I am going to participate in a professional exchange between Museum of Tomorrow and Science Museum Group, in England.
