An Austrian Mathematician specializing in partial differential equations and symplectic geometry recently said, “I dare to be different. I have a different approach and this means that I’m also unpredictable.”
If you haven’t guessed who we are talking about, it’s Anna Kiesenhofer, who secured Austria’s first cycling gold medal in the Tokyo Olympics, since 1896. Being a scientist and working full time as a postdoctoral fellow in the department of Mathematics at Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Lausanne, Switzerland, she has had an amazing academic background. She did her BSc from the Technical University of Vienna, MSc from the University of Cambridge and PhD from the Polytechnic University of Catalonia.
From being an expert at Maths to Physics to winning the Gold for her country, she proves that women can win and ace every sphere simultaneously.
We are all so inspired by her dedication and confidence.
