Marta Entradas has been a researcher in science communication at DINÂMIA’CET, ISCTE-IUL since 2013. She is currently a Marie Curie Fellow (2016-2018) and visiting scholar at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). She was formerly a Fulbright Scholar at Cornell University (NY) (2015-1016).

Marta Entradas is the lead researcher for the grant project ‘MORE-PE: Mobilising Resources for Public Engagement’, funded by the Portuguese funding agency Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia (FCT: PTDC/IVC-COM/0290/2014).

Marta Entradas completed her PhD in science communication at University College London (UCL) in 2011, where she was teaching assistant for courses in science communication and science policy. From 2009-2011, she was a trainer at Esconet (European Network for Science Communication) responsible for teaching scientists how to communicate with non-specialist audiences. In 2012/2013, she was the Bioenergy Dialogue Coordinator at BBSRC (Biotechnology and Biological Research Council) responsible for coordinating a national public dialogue to study public opinion on bioenergy and produce evidence to inform BBSRC policy.

Science communication, public understanding of science, public attitudes towards science and technology. Her current research focus on institutional communication with society.
