"Changing the World, One Equation at a Time," Deborah Berebichez
February 9, 2021
Deborah Berebichez grew up in a conservative community that discouraged girls from pursuing a career in science, technology or engineering. She went on to study physics, becoming the first Mexican woman to graduate with a PhD in physics from Stanford. In this presentation, she shares her journey which led her to becoming a physicist, a TV host of science programs, and a mentor to young women who want to become scientists. She will also discuss questions such as what is data science? What can physics learn from data science and what can data scientists learn from physicists?
