We are excited to celebrate the Women in Math Day this Friday, May 12 with you! We will feature six of our young female researchers (PhD students and postdocs) who will be giving a short overview of their research.

Our speakers

Each researcher will speak for 10 to 15 minutes and cover their area of expertise. The target audience for this event ranges from students to professors, so there will be something for everyone to learn. Our speakers are:

  • Vjosa Blakaj (Quantum Information Theory)
  • Ina Seidel (Discrete Optimization)
  • Eilind Karlsson (Topological Field Theories)
  • Daniela Schkoda (Causal Inference)
  • Anna Veselovska (Applied Harmonic Analysis)
  • Zahra Baghali Khanian (Quantum Information Theory)

About the Women in Math Day

The Women in Math Day is a great opportunity to celebrate and highlight the contributions made by women in mathematics. It is celebrated on May 12 each year – in honor of the birthday of Maryam Mirzakhani, an Iranian mathematician and the first woman to receive the Fields Medal which is one of the most prestigious awards in mathematics. Since last year, there is a second female Fields Medal winner: Maryna Viazovska, a Ukrainian mathematician.

There will be time for questions and networking after the presentations. We look foward to seeing you there!
