To showcase the many paths of women in science in Luxembourg, and to inspire young girls to pursue their passion for science, the institutions that form Research Luxembourg have launched the video series Women [& girls] in Science, in collaboration with MEGA, the Ministry for Equality in Luxembourg.
Choosing the path of science and research can have many trajectories. To show a glimpse of what different science journeys can look like, we selected 6 women in science in Luxembourg, each representing a different institution, scientific focus, background, and function. From PhD candidates, to science communicators, lab specialists and a professor, the options for a career in science are many.
“I find joy in doing something that has impact, in creating meaningful technologies and above all in learning and growing with my people. Know that it is important to love what you do, to find joy in what you do. Every little girl is unique. Every girl should follow her purpose and work hard to reach it.” The third video in the series Be Brave: Women [& girls] in Science is Djamila Aouada, Assistant Professor in Computer Vision at the SnT at the University of Luxembourg.
