Antonieta Rodríguez de Olmos
PhD in Biological Sciences, specifically food biotechnology. Biotech and science in general are in most recent developments with a huge impact on our economy and our life. We need common spaces to listen and meet scientists involved and share with them a pint, why not? Come to discover!
I have a PhD in Biology and work in the field of biotech-based companies’ creation. The biggest technology changes humanity will see in next decades will be more and more related to scientific developments so I think science has to become an everyday topic for everyone!

I have a Ph.D. in Microbiology and fell in love with science watching Beakman's World. Through Pint of Science, I want to give people the same feelings I had when listening to a scientist, a giant rat and his assistant talking about the wonders of the universe from the science perspective.
After graduating from Université de Montréal, Alexandra is now a PhD student in Chemistry at McGill University and has realized how powerful sciences are by their capacity to bring people together. Pint of Science is a great opportunity for her to share her love for science, with a beer of course!
Hello! I have been part of the Canadian national Pint of Science team since the 2019 edition and I am very happy to continue this adventure for 2020! More sciences, fun and beers in sight!
Costa Rica Director
Biotechnology Engineer, interested in scientific research and dissemination. After being in the lab I found passion in talking about science, crossing barriers through effective communication and making it visible in our society. I am very happy to make Pint of Science a reality in Costa Rica.

All this started when I was a student, then a Master in Chemistry (Electrochemistry applied to forensic sciences) and now a chemistry professor. I am passionate about science, working in the laboratory and obtaining results, but the exchange of knowledge with society is even more exciting.
Chemist by profession, researcher by passion and teacher by conviction. I am currently working on developing nanotechnology projects to provide solutions to medical problems. Transmitting and doing science is my goal.
Not a scientist but a firm believer in the importance of science and facts, especially in the times we're currently living in. Hoping to help bring back curiosity and the desire to learn in everyone.
Marcus has worked at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory for over 10 years. There he does work in science communication and education. He loves teaching everyone about renewable energy and scientific communication.
