#03 - Mathematician Dr. Luisa Andreis (WIAS): probability theory, friendship with colleagues, and role models in maths

The guest of this episode is a postdoctoral researcher at the Weierstrass Institute for Applied Analysis and Stochastics (WIAS) Dr. Luisa Andreis.

In this episode, we talk about the importance of mutual support between colleagues in science and whether it‘s possible to organize a math conference with just female speakers in the program.


After studying Mathematics at University of Torino, Luisa obtained a PhD in Computational Mathematics at the University of Padova, with a thesis in statistical mechanics. She then moved to WIAS, in Berlin, to work as a post-doc in the group Interacting random systems, where she widened her research interests and her collaboration network.

She has been a visiting researcher at Institute Henri Poincaré in Paris and Haussdorf research institute for Mathematics in Bonn. She works at the boundary between physics and mathematics and is mainly interested in studying rigorous mathematical properties of systems inspired by questions arising in natural science and in understanding universality in nature and in mathematics.
