I’m passionate about illustration, graphic narrative, and about transforming complex ideas and thought processes into visual language. Graphic narrative is a great way  to do science communication and to raise awareness about the role of women in science.

In the past I’ve used the pseudonym E.A. Casanova (why the name? It’s my abuelita‘s name. My second family-name is my abuelito‘s name).
