I am an experimental particle physicist working at the ATLAS experiment of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. Comprehensive background in data analysis, mathematical modelling and statistical analysis. R&D of silicon particle detectors and online event selection systems. Several years of experience in creating scientific and educational capacity development initiatives for social progress. I am currently working as a researcher at the LPNHE, a lab of the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) and I am co-coordinator of the LA-CoNGA Physics project. See my curriculum vitae for more information.
I have been engaged in several forms of outreach and education over the past few years: public seminars, physics masterclasses for high school students, guided visits to CERN, mentorship programs for girls in STEM.
A program to foster the development of the higher-level physics education and research carried out in Venezuela, through a fellowship program starting in 2019 for professors in the country.
The program brings physics to under-represented people around the world. The team has organized projects in many countries around the world. So far I have planned and led activities in Venezuela, Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, Uruguay and Argentina.
CEVALE2VE promotes high energy physics in Latin-America through webinars, virtual courses and career & opportunities sessions. Partnerships with institutions in Venezuela, Colombia, Peru and Ecuador.
My professional and social development experience taught me the importance of inclusiveness and diversity in leadership positions, both inside and outside academia. That is how I got involved with the Homeward Bound Project (HP), a one year long leadership program for women with a science background to learn the skills to influence policy and decision makers about global challenges. The program culminates in a 3-week expedition to Antarctica. The HB aims to create and equip a network of 1,000 women by selecting around 80 women from around the globe each year to make an impact on the way we care about the planet. I am honored and happy to be part of the 2020 team. You can follow my Homeward Bound journey here (blogging in English and French)
