Researchista loves media. Why? Because it’s worth it, just like in the add;) Yet, there are some gaps that Researchista aims to cover that are not covered much by media..

Research is mirrored a lot in the media in our days. It is that valuable chain of translation between Researchers and the public. Maybe not always works perfectly and in fact, many times it can go really wrong. Either ways, what would we have done without media? Thank you for your interest in what Researchista does, invite me for a chat, I will be glad to share with you more of what Researchista is up to. In the meanwhile, follow me on:,,,

Interviews & Media appearance

Science Luxembourg [FR]

Science Luxembourg offered me the chance to speak to the curious public in Luxembourg about the Research background of Researchista, about the importance of paying taxes to maintain the welfare state, about the need of Research in this and other social sciences area. Here, I also speak about our freshly launched Kickstarter campaign on Researchista’s board game, made out of a the PhD thesis that was graduated from the benches of Maastricht University and was financially supported by the funding partners from Luxembourg, called National Fund of Research.

TEDxMaastricht, Pitch Night [ENG]


For 3 minutes (and few extra seconds), Researchista presented her first public speech on 27.06.2016 about her blog and initiatives. It was a great experience, thank you TEDxMaastricht! (130 applicants, only 18 selected, almost 200 people present in the audience) Delightful night at Brandweer Kantine.


This picture has almost 3.000 views in 2 days [is it for wearing a dress and high heels, I wonder?] Good to know about the impact of my speech and/or fashion 🙂 Oh, wait, maybe it was because of my PhD thesis that I am holding in my hands! For whatever reason it is, thank you very much for taking time to share Researchista’s experience and insights, I hope together we can make a change in how Research is perceived and what important role it plays in our lives. If you ask me, I think it is beauty & Research that will save the world  😉
