Arcelia Yareli Hernández Reyes
Universidad de Guadalajara, Mexico
I am a fourth semester student of the Mathematics degree of the University Center of Exact Sciences and Engineering of the University of Guadalajara. Since I was a child I have been fascinated with science and one of my biggest incentives has been the math Olympics, so studying this career was a natural decision for me. In the last two years I have participated as a trainer in the summer courses of Mathematical Logic Integration, later called Súmate, where we prepared primary and secondary school children to participate in the ONMAPS Olympiad. Thanks to the diffusion of science in my university center and to my teachers I would like to dedicate myself to research.
Alejandra Jazmín González Sanoja
Tecnológico de Monterrey, Mexico
I graduated with honors from the Industrial Physical Engineering degree with a concentration in Intelligent Systems from the Tecnológico de Monterrey. During my school life I participated in the organization of the International Physics Symposium at ITESM and spent a summer at the Institute of Radio Astronomy and Astrophysics at the Universidad Autónoma de México (UNAM).
Bárbara Núñez Madariaga
Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso, Chile
Currently, I am in my first year of my PhD in Mathematics, but my passion for this science began 7 years ago, when I entered my Bachelor’s degree, and at that time, without really understanding what a mathematician did, I set out to follow this path full of challenges, which day by day shows me part of the beauty behind mathematics.
Beatriz Barbero Lucas
University of Salamanca, Spain
I am a student of the Mathematics Degree at the University of Salamanca. I started the degree because many people around me had studied it or were studying it and they all spoke to me about the wonders of this science. I have discovered a world full of possibilities and with a lot of applications and although the career is difficult I would choose it again a thousand times. I am passionate about student representation, I was a member of Equality in the National Association of Mathematics Students. I would love to work in the world of cryptography when I finish my studies and that is why I am looking for research internships in this field.
Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María, Chile
I am a student of Civil Mathematical Engineering at the Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María. My career is a bit unknown and in short it covers a part of engineering so that you have the tools to apply mathematics to real problems. Since I was in school I saw math as something wonderful; my desire was to be able to learn everything from it and use it, if possible, to help others. That’s why I decided to take a chance, moving to another city and taking on all the work that was ahead of me to study this career. It has been a difficult path, but I have always had the example of strong people who support me, especially women.
Politecnico di Torino, Italy
I am currently enrolled in the last semester of my Master’s Degree in Mathematical Engineering at Politecnico di Torino, Italy. After my Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics, this switch allowed me to approach real and practical issues while keep nourishing strong technical skills. Mathematics has been my strong guiding companion since 15 years, allowing me to explore the STEM environment and connect with people from multiple disciplines. As a woman and a mathematician, I feel like nowadays world would benefit from connection figures like me, especially considering the growing importance of multidisciplinary.
Universidad del Norte, Colombia
Student from the University of Göttingen, Germany, she did his undergraduate and master’s degrees at the Universidad del Norte, Colombia. He is interested in analysis, in particular differential equations, because they allow us to model and understand the world around us.
Lilibeth de Horta Narvaez
Universidad Tecnológica de Bolívar, Colombia
I am a mathematician from the University of Cartagena, I started teaching in schools a little before I graduated. Then I started a specialization in applied statistics at the Universidad Tecnológica de Bolívar and two months later I was linked as a professor in the course of calculation, linear algebra and statistics. I was passionate about this line of work, so I continued my studies with a master’s degree at this same University and area.
So currently are teaching in academic, university and process of developing my thesis to complete the master. I would like to continue with the research and experiment in other work fields.
Mercedes Jordan Santana
Technological University Dublin, Ireland
Professor of Statistics and Mathematics at Dublin University of Technology I studied Mathematics at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, did my PhD at the University of Sussex and post-doc at the University of Burgundy in France. I always liked and was surprised by mathematics. My passion is geometry and I believe deeply in the infinite possibilities of science.
Paulina Hernández Fontes
Tecnológico de Monterrey, Mexico
Sandra Karina Narváez Pupiales
Universidad Técnica del Norte, Ecuador

She is an engineer in Electronics and Communication Networks with fourth level studies corresponding to the Master in Communication Networks. She has worked professionally as a Project Manager and Controller in the area of Telecommunications in the north and center of Ecuador. She has taken several courses of professional preparation, teaching at national and international level in areas such as WLAN, Network and Information Security, Administration, Service Management, Networking and Hyperconvergence of networks and services. She has important certifications and studies at the level of CCNA Routing & Switching, CCNA Wireless, Security Infrastructure and Security FabricFortinet, Data Center and Storage HPE, among others.
Silvia Margarita Calderón
Oulu University, Finland
I am a member of the Atmospheric Research group in the Nano and Molecular Systems Research Unit of the University of Oulu, Finland. I am chemical engineer but with time I realized that I wanted to do a very special kind of research: mathematical modeling. This is how I studied a MSc in Applied Engineering Mathematics. Then I became professor at the School of Chemical Engineering at the Universidad of Los Andes in Venezuela. I had so much fun in my master studies that I decided to add the “Math’s touch” to every subject from laboratory to elective courses to make them funnier. In my research field, atmospheric modelling, Math is essential to translate from observations to predictions. Math is a very powerful magic and this is how I explain it to my children. I love to imagine that the numerical methods that I use to solve the models are like revealing charms. Math is so amazing that the same equations that we use to understand the interaction of light with cloud droplets can be also used in colloids.
