Women in Research Ireland: Seminar - A journey from Sicily to Ireland - how my passion for nanoscience changed my life

NOTE: This item has expired and will soon be unavailable for viewing.

Women in Research Ireland will be hosting the next seminar on Friday the 16th of February entitled “A journey from Sicily to Ireland - how my passion for nanoscience changed my life”.

Valeria Nicolosi, Professor in the School of Physics and Chemistry in the CRANN institute, will give a personalised account about how she started her career as a woman in nanoscience and how she came to be one of the most internationally renowned and respected researchers in her field. 

She is the first woman to have reached the position of Chair in the School of Chemistry since the foundation of Trinity College Dublin in 1592. She has published more than 200 high-impact-papers, including Science and Nature, and delivered more than 100 invited and plenary presentations at major conferences/institutions/public events. She is the only 5 times ERC awardee in Europe.

As such it is no surprise that her research has found direct commercial impact, being licensed to companies such as Samsung Korea, Nokia, LEGO and Ferrari Formula 1.

In November 2017, she was referred to as one of "the brightest minds on the planet", according to BBC London.

This event will take place in The Global Room in the Hamilton Building, Trinity College. Tea, coffee and sandwiches will be served free of charge. Follow our facebook event for up to date information.

The event is free, but we ask that you register on eventbrite prior to attending.

This seminar is an inclusive, QUILTBAG (queer and questioning, intersex, lesbian, transgender and two-spirit, bisexual, asexual and ally, and gay and genderqueer) friendly space.

We look forward to meeting you there!
