Practical matters How to find us N.H. (Nathália Helena) Azevedo Pereira, PhD

N.H. (Nathália Helena) Azevedo Pereira, PhD


I am a postdoctoral researcher working on EU Erasmus+ projects and the EU H2020 project OTTER (Outdoor Science Education for a Sustainable Future). I hold a PhD in Science Education and an MSc in Ecology from the University of São Paulo (Brazil). As a Fulbrighter, I completed an internship during my PhD at the Caruth Institute for Engineering Education at SMU Lyle School of Engineering (USA) and had the opportunity to get involved in STEM education projects.

I am an author of science education materials adopted in the São Paulo municipal public school system and printed/digital pedagogical resources used in several Brazilian states. As a Biologist, I started my trajectory as a researcher in the Vegetal Ecology area. As an educator, I engaged at college in science outreach projects and at the Legion of Good Will (a Brazilian NGO) as a volunteer science/biology teacher (for ten years) in youth and adult education.

​By the end of my master's degree, I started to design teaching materials with an inquiry-based approach. Since then, I have been acquiring experience in different levels and contexts of teaching (high school, adult education, undergraduate, graduate, and professional development) and developing research with a mixed-methods approach, dialoguing with the nature of science, active learning methodologies, and production and evaluation of educational materials.
