Square Stage

Eugenia Covernton


I do training, coaching and consulting in both oral and written science communication, along with management of projects related to science outreach and science engagement.

If you would like to discuss, feel free to contact me, book a short meeting or email me. I am fluent in English, French and Spanish, so choose the language you prefer!

I'm currently based in London, UK.

I'm not good at social media, so I'm not sure you'd be interested in following me. If you are, though, please follow the links below. At the very least, you'll see cute pictures of my dog from time to time.

Hi! I'm Eugenia*

I grew up in Argentina, where I studied Biotechnology, Cellular Biology and Microbiology. I did a short research stay in Uruguay before going to South Korea to specialize in Management in Science and Engineering. After that I moved to France for a PhD in virology at the Institut Pasteur in Paris. After my PhD I worked as the scientific coordinator of an interdisciplinary doctoral school at CRI (Centre de Recherches Interdisciplinaires), where I developed a course for PhD students on oral communication of research. 

In 2019, I decided to devote full time to helping scientists communicate their research more effectively to different kinds of audiences. Today I am working as CEO in Lecturers Without Borders, a non-profit NGO that aims to bring scientists to schools around the world. I also teach science communication in graduate and post-graduate levels in English, French and Spanish, I work as Community Engagement Officer in the London-based social enterprise Mapping for Change and I do coaching and consulting for scientists and institutions in science communication. On the side I'm (very slowly) learning German and I try to play the piano, and I work for a humanitarian organization in my hometown in Argentina. I also like baking and decorating cakes when I have time, which unfortunately is not as often as I'd like to.

*Here's a Wikipedia article about my name, including its pronunciation in a few different languages. I'm OK with any version of it, so feel free to choose the one that feels more natural and don't worry if you hear me pronounce it differently. I pronounce it in Spanish: [ewˈxenja]
