2023/11/16 - 2023/11/16 I organized the Panel 'Science, Diplomacy, and the Resolution of Crisis' at the 7th Portuguese Congress of History of Science and Technology. Its aim was to build on the work conducted in the H2020 project InsSciDE and explore cases of science diplomacy before WWII, thus contributing to the theorization of the understudied deeper past of science diplomacy (2023/11/15 - 2023/11/17)

2022/07/01 - 2022/07/01 I organized the Panel 'New Imperialism and the technoscientific construction of natural resources, 1870-1945' at Tensions of Europe Conference 2022. Its aim was to analyze the actors, tools, and ideologies recruited to drive colonial exploitation of natural resources, using a comparative approach to identify commonalities in the colonial strategies taken by different colonial powers. The notion of 'available natural resources' had often to be constructed in order to legitimize colonialism, with the help of technoscientific tools. (2022/07/01 - 2022/07/01)

2022/02/09 - 2022/06/20 I participated in an online seminar on historical research and archives, with a particular emphasis on colonial archives. It discussed the main historiographical debates that have marked the last decades, regarding the approaches that historians have developed in relations to archives, and the 'archival turn.'

2022/03/24 - 2022/03/24 I participated in a workshop with InsSciDE case study authors and invited experts to discuss cross-cutting themes and present-day applications of historical research on science diplomacy for teaching, training and everyday practice. My group focused on the theme of Science Diplomats. The discussions dissected power structures and vested interests that drive science diplomacy, questioned the concept of 'science diplomat', and probed the alleged capacity of science diplomacy to champion global challenge.

2022/03/22 - 2022/03/23 I participated in InsSciDE's third Open Conference (Lisbon). The event explored crucial themes in Europe's relationship to scientific expertise and influence. DAY 1 spotlighted the role of Science Academies in science diplomacy since the 18th century. In DAY 2 diverse stakeholders discussed the entanglements between science diplomacy and four topics deemed central to future action: Open Science, Anthropocene, Technoscience and Innovation, and New Actors and a New Definition of Science Diplomacy.

2022/03/22 - 2022/03/22 I chaired Session 2 of the congress 'International Action of Academies' on 22 March 2022. This congress built on previous exploratory work between InsSciDE and the European Network of Academies to delineate the role of academies as science diplomacy organizations, particularly concerning their international involvement and role in asserting science diplomacy.

2020/10 - 2022/02 I was selected to the Laboratory of the New Dramaturgies Festival (coord. Mickaël de Oliveira) to develop a project in the performing arts, being tutored by an experienced artist, which in my case was the Portuguese theater maker Patrícia Portela. I participated with two other selected artists in the program's four artistic residencies, various workshops, seminars, and masterclasses by artists and academics in the performing arts. I wrote a theater play ('All Too Human'), which was later published by the Festival.

2020/01/06 - 2020/01/11 I participated in the Anthropocene Campus (AC) Lisbon. The AC is an intensive, week-long summer school format for co-producing and co-learning that asks how knowledge production can be attuned to transdisciplinary and translocal methodologies that link insights of the natural and humanist sciences with other knowledge forms and practices. It explores pathways towards a novel transdisciplinary culture of knowledge production and education. I attended seminars on social inequality, and on gentrification.
