Vera Novais

Vera Novais is our Community Manager

Vera has been a journalist since 2013. Her main beat is science and health, but working for a generalistic news media means that she often finds herself reporting on other topics. As a journalist, Vera embraces the mission of providing the best information possible to her audience, including counteracting mis- and disinformation.

Being a science journalist means not only covering science stories (at large) but also being part of a wide international community that she works to help flourish. Vera has been a member of ABSW since 2017, she often collaborates with the World Federation of Science Journalists (WFSJ), and she's a board member of SciComPt - The Portuguese Network of Science and Technology Communication.

As a Community Manager, Vera expects to network with ABSW members and followers, to listen to their queries, and to address needs and expectations.

The Association of British Science Writers is registered in England and Wales under company number 07376343 at 76 Glebe Lane, Barming, Maidstone, Kent, ME16 9BD.
