About the trainers

Attila Dávid Molnár holds a M.Sc. degree in molecular microbiology and a B.Sc. degree in filmmaking and video communication. He is a filmmaker and a scientist at the same time. He founded Hungary’s biggest wildlife film production unit, the Filmjungle Society, back in 1996, worked for Hungary’s No. 1 science news magazine, DELTA, for years. He has also  directed numerous award-winning natural history films and edited thousands of hours of factual programming at SPEKTRUM TELEVISION, a Hungarian-Czech popular science television channel. Attila’s filmography includes Naturvision, IWFF, Matsalu, Greenscreen and Envirofilm, winning titles such as The Invisible Wildlife Photographer, Sharks in my Viewfinder, Vipera Life – a Serpent’s Tale, Wolfwatching, and Rhinos on the Brink. His most recent works include scientific video abstracts produced for universities and research institutes all across Europe.

Attila Andics is a trainer, a psychologist, a maths teacher, a civil activist, a social neuroscientist. He has held trainings on presentation skills and brain imaging to researchers, on intercultural competences to youth workers, and on sexual education methods and cooperative learning techniques to teachers. He has worked in formal education as well as for several NGOs. He is interested in voice processing, and in social and affective aspects of learning and perception in general, and in the neural processes behind them. Using comparative brain imaging (fMRI) and behavioural methods with dogs and humans, he investigates the species-specificity of how we perceive individuals, how we learn about others, and how we process language from an evolutionary perspective. During his PhD, he studied the neural mechanisms of voice recognition, and the interplay of speech and talker identity processing.

Paloma Marín Arraiza studied physics at the University of Granada (Spain). She also holds a Master’s degree in information science and science communication from the same university. She developed part of the Master’s degree programme at the São Paulo State University (UNESP) in Brazil. Currently, she is part of the Competence Centre for Non-Textual Materials at the German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB), where she works as a research assistant in the Research and Development division. Her main interests and research topics are Linked Open Data and videos as a way to communicate science.
