Giuseppe Sellaroli - Fantastic Physicists and Where to Find Them Garcia, Amanda


Abstract: Contrary to popular belief, women have, throughout history, made important contributions to physics. This talk will introduce the audience to a handful of physicists who helped build the field, yet remain relatively unknown. A brief summary of each physicists’ achievements and diverse background will be provided. The last part of the talk will be dedicated to providing information and resources on how to search for and find historical examples of women who have advanced the study of physics.

About the speaker: Amanda Garcia is a PhD Candidate in Systems Design Engineering at the University of Waterloo. Giuseppe Sellaroli has a PhD in Applied Mathematics from the University of Waterloo, where he has been a postdoctoral fellow and sessional lecturer.
