Leonor RuivoPeople Management and EDI officer at Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência, Portugal
With a PhD in Life Sciences, my experience expands across research and education, academia and industry, and multiple countries. As a detailed-oriented, critical observer, I have dedicated part of my academic career researching how the brain learns and adapts to its environment. As a teacher and course developer in higher education, I committed to creating engaging, research-based training materials. I am skilled in identifying and harnessing people’s strengths in order to work together towards shared goals, passionate aboutnding relevant information to solve complex problems, and using knowledge and innovative tools to deliver creative solutions in my projects. In a fast-changing, multicultural world, my goal is to work on projects that prepare people to be skilful and well-rounded professionals, while promoting fair, integrated and diverse workplaces.
