In this video, four young female scientists from Mathematics Münster give insights. Antje Dabeler, Azul Fatalini, Martina Fruttidoro und Julia Schleuß are doctoral researchers and talk about their most important maths moment - so far.
The video was recorded on the occasion of International Women in Maths Day 2021.
The Cluster of Excellence Mathematics Münster supports underrepresented groups and aims to increase gender equality on all levels, e.g. through established programmes such as the MATHRIX Professorship, the Ada Lovelace Fellowships for excellent PhD students, and the MINT Mentoring Programme for outstanding female master’s students.
