I have been involved in various science communication initiatives. Since 2014, I have been the scientific coordinator for the project: superhumains.ch. The goal of this project is to educate, inform and dialogue with high school students about bioethical issues regarding the use of emerging technologies.
I have co-founded neurhone: connecteur d’idées, a non-profit organization that organizes TEDxMartigny, the Carnotzets Scientifiques, and the FuckUp Nights in Valais, Switzerland. In 2015, neurhone received an Award from the State of Valais for the organization of TEDxMartigny, as part of the celebration of the bicentenary of the entrance of Valais in the Swiss Confederation.
Alongside these initiatives, I have taken part in different science communication workshops offered by the SNSF and the University of Zurich (Science Communication Writing Workshop, How to communicate science to the public, and Media Training for researchers). In 2014, I received the Best science blog award by the Agence Science-Presse in Canada.
In 2018, to celebrate the 50th birthday of 2001: A Space Odyssey, I launched the 502001.CH initiative: a series of events (workshops, film screenings, conferences, etc.) to create a space to reflect on the future of our species, with Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 film as a starting point.
I am currently helping with TEDxAbbotsford.
In 2017, I launched conexkt: staging innovative stories.
