Welcome, Bem-vind@, Croeso! I’m Andreia and here you can find more about my research and science in general. You’ll also find more on Science Communication, Public Engagement and how to get crafty with science.
What is Science?
[uncountable] knowledge about the structure and behaviour of the natural and physical world, based on facts that you can prove, for example by experiments
Conjunto de conhecimentos fundados sobre princípios certos. Saber, instrução, conhecimentos vastos
Gwybodaeth am strwythur ac ymddygiad y byd naturiol a ffisegol, yn seiliedig ar ffeithiau y gallwch eu profi, er enghraifft trwy arbrofion.
I am a Lecturer in Biomedical Sciences who is passionate about science communication, public engagement and outreach. In my research, I am interested in understanding the tumour microenvironment and how this helps tumours grow. Other than being a scientist, I am also a crafter and want to bring a creative side to science and research. Hence, I started the public engagement project Science Stitches – Communicating Science through Fashion. This project has branched out to a research project, looking at how crafting helps the mental health of medical undergraduate students. I am a project manager for Portuguese (language) in Wales, for the Native Scientist initiative, where we bring science to migrant or second-generation children, in their own language. You can find out more about me and all these projects by following the links below.

Science Stitches is a Wellcome Trust-funded Public Engagement Project, aiming at raising awareness for cancer prevention as well as sustainable fashion.
