Dr. Mónica Feliú-Mójer

Ciencia Puerto Rico
Director of Communications and Science Outreach
Dr. Mónica Feliú-Mójer applies a cultural lens to storytelling and science communication to engage underserved communities with science, especially to Puerto Ricans and Latinxs. As a science communicator, she draws on her training (a PhD in neurobiology), personal background, and culture (a woman from rural Puerto Rico) to make science relevant and relatable to marginalized populations. She works with the non-profits Ciencia Puerto Rico and iBiology, where her efforts include: serving as editor-in-chief for the publication of more than 400 scientist-written popular science articles and op-eds in a major newspaper; co-editing the first collection of culturally relevant popular essays and stories about science and Puerto Rico; producing a series of short films changing common narratives about scientists of color; and training hundreds of scientists in culturally relevant science communication, among others. Dr. Feliú-Mójer obtained her B.S. in Human Biology at the University of Puerto Rico in Bayamón and her Ph.D. in Neurobiology at Harvard University.
