Anna Maria Cherubini

Università del Salento, Lecce (IT)

I am a researcher at the Department of Mathematics and Physics of University of Salento. The topics of my current research are random dynamical systems and critical transitions in complex systems. I am also passionate about the many-faceted world of women in science and trying to do my part to help things change for the better.

I am the coordinator of the EWM newsletter team.

Francesca Arici

Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences, Leipzig (DE)

I am a mathematical physicist, passionate about making mathematical research achievements accessible to the general public.  I was awarded a PhD in mathematical physics from the International School for Advanced Studies in Trieste, Italy in 2015. Currently, I am working as a social media and science relation officer with part-time research duties. My scientific research interests are in the field of noncommutative geometry and I am interested in its interplay with theoretical physics.

Olga Kuznetsova

Aalto University, Helsinki (FI)

I am a Master’s student and my research is in coding theory and combinatorics. My plan is to start a PhD in algebraic statistics in the near future. Before mathematics, I spent several years in management consulting and start-ups and completed a degree at Helsinki School of Economics.  In my opinion, the EWM plays an important role in supporting female mathematicians and I am happy that my background is useful for the organization. In addition to being part of this (absolutely awesome!) team, I also manage website development and help with marketing.

Sema Coskun

University of Kaiserslautern, Kaiserslautern (DE)

I am working as a postdoctoral researcher in financial mathematics group at the University of Kaiserslautern, Germany. My recent research interests cover the modeling of electricity prices and electricity demand particularly in intraday market. I have completed my PhD thesis also at the same university in 2017. During my PhD studies, I worked on advanced Monte Carlo techniques for pricing certain financial derivatives in stochastic volatility environments. I enjoy learning new things both in mathematics and in programming. I am really happy to be part of this amazing team.

Houry Melkonian

University of Exeter, Penryn Campus, UK

I am a lecturer in mathematics at the University of Exeter since June 2018 and an Associate Fellow of UK Higher Education Academy. I am research active in the areas of harmonic analysis and spaces of analytic functions. I obtained my PhD from Heriot-Watt University (HWU) in Dec 2017 which was about “Bases Properties of Sequences of Dilated Periodic Functions in Banach and Hilbert Spaces”. I am also leading a current research about the interaction between mathematics and art and how learning and teaching mathematics can be reimagined through art at primary school levels. Prior to my current employment, I worked as an associate lecturer at the Edinburgh International College (EIC) of Napier University; an approved exam marker at the Department of Mathematics of HWU (Edinburgh, Dubai and China); an academic teacher in Mathematics at the International Study Centre of the University of Strathclyde; and as a curriculum and a VLE developer in Mathematics at the International Study Centre of Durham University.
Writing articles is my passion, and to be part of such a motivated and supportive editorial team will help my imagination flourish even further.
