    Mónica Feliú Mójer, Ph.D.

    I am an award-winning bilingual science communicator with more than 18 years of experience in culturally relevant and multimedia science communication, community engagement, media relations, filmmaking, science advocacy, and diversity, equity and inclusion.

     

    I tap into my PhD training, personal background, and culture (a woman from a rural working class community in Puerto Rico) to engage historically underserved and overlooked audiences, especially Puerto Ricans and other Spanish-speakers, with science.
