Aneta Gumieniak

Projects Director

My interest for communicating through the written word led me to study journalism. Quickly, I dived into a wide range of communication formats and specialised in audiovisual production. Not until then did I realize the importance of overseeing the execution process from an initial concept to the final delivery. Over the years, I have been broadening my experience in project management, playing a hybrid role by coordinating teams while also being responsible for good client relationships. After exploring a diverse range of sectors, I settled on science and technology where I help bring communication one step closer to its intended audience. Since 2018, I have been growing with Scienseed and I currently run the Projects Department.

Suresh Chithathur Raman, PhD

EU Project Manager

Having spent several years in biomedical research including a PhD from Spain and a master’s degree from Australia, I realised that although I liked benchwork, what I loved was working on all the paraphernalia that facilitated science. I immensely enjoy identifying specific funding programs from international institutions, matching them with research needs, expressing their fit through a compelling proposal and managing the projects they support. At Scienseed, I get to use my penchant for science communication, strong academic experience and aptitude for critical thinking towards the day-to-day management of cutting-edge collaborative research projects that are bound to bring tomorrow´s disruptive solutions.

Paula Millán

Scicomm Project Manager

Intrigued by the relationship between living organisms and the environment, I graduated in Biology and specialized in Environmental management. I progressively got involved in the technological sector and digital consulting which drove my attention to the hurdles of human interaction with the digital world. I studied UX/UI to help me find better solutions to the challenges I faced during my career as account manager and strategist. I focus on understanding clients’ needs and I enjoy working alongside designers, developers and communicators to exceed their expectations. The most exciting part of working at Scienseed is contributing to bring science closer to society in innovative ways.

Melany León

Scicomm Project Manager

It was my interest to deepen in human biology and to be involved in helping people what led me to study a Biotechnology BSc, specialized in Health. Afterwards my curiosity took me to study a Marketing & Branding program and eventually I started working managing projects related to Medical Marketing and Pharmaceutical industry. At Scienseed, I use my management skills and my scientific understanding to ensure the clients’ needs are successfully fulfilled. What I enjoy most is to work as a team towards the spreading of Health and Science topics to the society, through communication and design.

Guzmán Sánchez, PhD

Co-founder & Advisor

I am a proud co-founder and former projects director at Scienseed. Since June 2021, I embarked myself in other professional adventures while I still keep engaged with the company as an external advisor.

Lucas Sánchez, PhD

Co-founder / Director

I have worked in a research laboratory, on the radio, in a newspaper and as a teacher of modern harmony and jazz. In this particular melting pot, I acquired diverse skills and a growing curiosity: to explore the possibilities that each format offers to communicate knowledge and innovation. That’s why I co-founded Scienseed with Guzmán. Currently, I’m the director of the company and I’m in charge of the Communication and Creativity Department.

Pablo Pineño

Science Communicator

I have always nurtured a strong curiosity to figure out how nature works. This led me to embark on a Biotechnology BSc and, afterwards, to work in different research laboratories. At the same time, I have always been passionate about writing stories, so I eventually decided to branch out and take an MA in Creative Writing. I soon realized that science actually is a fascinating story about the world that surrounds us. Currently, I work as a science communicator in Scienseed, exploiting my storytelling skills to disseminate scientific knowledge and adapting it to different audiences and formats.

Bruno Martin

Science Communicator

My background is in journalism, working as a science reporter for newspapers and specialist outlets, in English and in Spanish. Since my days as a Biology student, I have become convinced that research needs to be disseminated for the benefit, scrutiny and enjoyment of everyone outside the academic world. I’m especially interested in the social side of science and the way it’s represented in the press, both subjects I explored while taking an MSc in Science Communication. At Scienseed, I’m applying my experience in media relations and exploring new ways of communicating expert knowledge.

Kira Keini

Scicomm Strategist

It was my passion for writing that first steered me towards studying communication at university. Quickly I realised how much power communication actually has in affecting how people feel and think about the world around them. This revelation made me want to use my skills in advancing the use of research-based information in society. I started to work in science communication alongside my studies and also focused both my Bachelor’s and Master’s theses around the topic. I have years of experience from working as a communications consultant and project manager in projects dealing with the communication of science and expert knowledge. At Scienseed I’m applying my skills in strategic communication in making sure that scientific and expert information is available to the right audiences at the right time in the right places.

Nerea Felices

Junior Science Communicator

I wanted to do science communication since I started my BSc in Biomedicine. However, I wasn’t brave enough to act on it until I started an internship in Scienseed during my MSc. I learnt a lot during that stay, and enjoyed it so much, that I turned around my career path and focused on it. After strengthening my communication skills through courses and seminars, I was lucky enough to land on Scienseed again, now for the long ride. Using my knowledge to help people understand science and innovations gives me a real sense of achievement, both personally and professionally.

Clara Prieto

Art Director

Focusing my career on infographics and scientific illustration since day one has led me to work as an information designer for newspapers, organisations and universities around the globe. I’ve combined this with my experience in the field learning first-hand about my second passion: ecology. I’m currently the art director of Scienseed and I have a particular focus on conservation and environment-related projects.

Txus Fernández

Motion Grapher

In recent years I worked as a graphic communicator in a product design studio, where I learned to give identity to spaces and objects, I have designed both publishing and digital publications and acquired extensive experience in branding and corporate communication. In parallel, my passion for audiovisual narrative led me to collaborate in the filming of several short films and video clips. Eventually, I got to combine my passion with my design skills in Scienseed, where I’m in charge of animation and motion graphics projects.

Irene Zapardiel

Motion Grapher

I’ve worked as an animator for several short pieces, corporate and social media videos. My background in design allows me to be versatile and enjoy not only animation but also 2D & 3D design and illustration. I love exploring new techniques and styles while finding the right fit for every project. At Scienseed, I’m applying my skills to find the best way to portray information in an appealing and accessible way.

Elena Contel

Junior Designer

As a creative student of Biotechnology, I always enjoyed summarising and making schemes from scientific concepts to make them more visual and memorable. I then decided to combine my scientific background with my love for drawing through a Masters program in Scientific Illustration. At Scienseed, I apply my unique skills to different formats such as web design, infographics and illustration. This allows me to express complex information in an accessible way, which is, after all, my passion!
