Bourse L'Oréal Unesco pour les femmes et la sciences

Every year, The Fondation l'Oréal and UNESCO granted the top scientists and encourage young female researchers from all over the world. This program is called "For women in sciences "

On October, 14th 2013, Cecile Huneau and Olga Mula Hernandez received the L'Oréal Unesco grant.

Cécile huneau is a PhD student in mathematics at the ENS (Département Mathématiques Appliquées). The study of the famous Einstein equations helps to know if the results made by the physicists are generally true. She tries to develop a simplified pattern which will help to understand the structure of those equations.

Olga Mula Hernandez is also a PhD student in mathematics. She is part of the Laboratoire Jacques Louis Lions (UPMC) and the CEA (French Atomic Energy Commission) and is a specialist of the digital simulation of the nuclear activity. She is currently working on a thesis aimed at increasing safety in nuclear reactors by contributing to model the evolution of the population of free neutrons in the heart of reactor in the most accurate way possible.
