    "In this research I analyze the case of Brigitte Baptiste a trans woman scientist who is the director of the National Institute of Biodiversity in Colombia. I understand her public presence in the media as matters of care in technoscience. I borrow this concept from Maria Puig dela Bellacasa, and her work (mainly philosophical) on Haraway. I would locate my research within a feminist anthropology of science and technology which focuses on public communication of science practices (so far) embodied by women scientists in their diversity."
