Cristina Gallego Páramo
She is a scientist that also loves art, and believes that both can benefit from each other. During her PhD in Biochemistry, she started as well to deepen her interest and skills in graphic design as a way to improve clarity and attractiveness in science communication. She believes that, if we want science to be better communicated, it should captivate our audience: be accurate, but also beautiful. Cristina joined SRUK in 2018 and has collaborated designing graphic material for some of the events of the Scottish constituency.
She is an adventure-lover, scientist and speaker who advocates for diversity, science and climate action. With a strong scientific background, Ana understands that science needs to be at the forefront of scientific action. Ana works as an academic fellow at the University of Aberdeen. Her research links theoretical and empirical ecology to inform biodiversity conservation. Ana believes that, for science to shape people’s actions, it needs to be communicated effectively. She helps scientists and organisations to communicate their science through innovative performing arts. In 2018, she hosted her own science stand-up comedy TV show.
