Why they chose a career in science
At present only 30% of researchers worldwide are women, according to data from UNESCO. In order to draw more attention to women and girls in science, International Day of Women and Girls in Science is celebrated every year on 11 February. We would like to introduce 4 of our female scientists to you, with the goal of inspiring more women and girls to follow in their footsteps.
Mirjam Nelisse, research scientist
If you want to analyse the safety risks and reliability of infrastructure, go to research scientist Mirjam Nelisse. As strange as it may sound, 100% safe infrastructure is not the aim.
Meet Mirjam Nelisse
Sayeda Nowrozon Nahar, chemical engineer
The passion of chemical engineer Sayeda Nowrozon Nahar is asphalt, sustainable asphalt to be precise. Wouldn't it be great if we could soon drive on roads made of bio-asphalt throughout the Netherlands?
Romée Kars, Geologist
Romée Kars and her fellow researchers from the Geological Survey of the Netherlands use geomodelling to map the Dutch subsurface. This is inspiring work, because what is more interesting than the earth, the basis of everything?
