Warwick Celebrates International Day for Women and Girls in Science

Posted on February 14, 2018

February 11th marks the UN’s International Day for Women and Girls in Science; the University spoke to several of Warwick’s female research scientists, to understand the range of areas being studied by young women on campus, and their hopes for their research and the future.

CDT student, Nataliya Tkachenko, was interviewed by the University. As a final year student, Nataliya has spent the last three years researching at “the intersection of social, environmental, and computer sciences”, with a particular focus on urban resilience and flood risk. She feels that “it is incredibly important for everyone to be heard, irrespectively from whether the message contains problems, hopes, joys or fears”.

In an article published on the University’s main news page, Nataliya features alongside three other female students, from the Departments of Psychology, Chemistry and Life Sciences, who all hope to benefit life for the future, through their cutting-edge research here at Warwick. See here for the full article.

Happy International Day for Women and Girls in Science!
