Besides fighting disinformation in the media, I also like to work in the field and engage with audiences so we can exchange ideas and discuss in simple terms how disinformation is affecting our lives and what we can do to prevent it from spreading.
The more platforms we use, the more challenging it is for us to stay alert. That viral quote your angry uncle just shared on Facebook? There’s a chance it was never said. That video of a politician saying something literally unbelievable on YouTube? It could be a deep fake edit. That audio from a friend of a friend of a friend that was forwarded to you on Whatsapp warning about a looming zombie apocalypse? Probably (and hopefully!) created by someone just trying to scare you. Even something as harmless as a “dank meme” can have a negative effect on democracies, the stock market and businesses.
I want to work with you. Together we can prepare you and your audiences to stop disinformation from spreading.
I have spoken in Latin America and the US about the dangers of disinformation and I’ve been invited to speak at tech and social media events and NGOs with an interest in the matter. Previous speaking engagements include Social Media Day, Innovative Buenos Aires or the Council of the Americas in Washington, DC.
The difference between disinformation, misinformation, malinformation
The different types of disinformation out there and who’s spreading it
What we all need to know to defend ourselves from false and misleading content
I work with NGOs, IGOs, think tanks and businesses that are looking to raise awareness about the dangers of disinformation around the world and counteract the negative effects of disinformation campaigns.
Disinformation is a global threat that is reshaping the world as we know it. Let’s join forces to fight this together and make people care about what’s happening.
