About Beata

Engineer of biotechnology by training and a PhD candidate in molecular biology, Beata believes that science not only needs public understanding, but also engagement. At the same time, she realizes that science advances quickly. So fast, that it is hard for the information to be transmitted to and assimilated by the broader public. Consequently, Beata wants to participate in dissemination of new discoveries and creation of a forum, where groups with different points of view meet and every perspective can be heard and addressed.

Beata is the editor of 13 Breaks:
