Be Brave: Women [& girls] in Science: Emmanuella Osuebi-Iyke


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.

“You don’t need to have it all figured out. Just take that leap.” The fourth video in the series Be Brave: Women [& girls] in Science is Emmanuella Onyinyechi Osuebi-Iyke, whose curiosity for how plants function led her to a research career in Plant / Environmental Science.

Emmanuella is a final-year PhD researcher in the team of FNR ATTRACT Fellow Dr Stan Schymanski at the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST). Discover more in the video!
