IHES celebrates women mathematicians – 9 May 2023

On the occasion of the International Day of Women in Mathematics, as part of the “May12” initiative, the Institut des Hautes Etudes Scientifiques celebrates women mathematicians, with a public event in the presence of Nathalie Ayi, Associate Professor at the Jacques-Louis Lions Laboratory (CNRS/Sorbonne University), and Tina Nikoukhah, post-doctoral researcher at the Borelli Center of ENS Paris-Saclay.

The event will take place on Tuesday, May 9, 2023 at 5:00 pm at the Marilyn and James Simons Conference Center, IHES.

Nathalie Ayi is a mathematician specializing in partial differential equations and their application to the kinetic theory of gases. She is also the author, director and presenter of “Tête-à-tête chercheuse(s)“, a podcast where, every month since September 2022, she exchanges with researchers in mathematics, but not only. After giving a presentation explaining her research and her background, she will exchange with Tina Nikoukhah to learn more about her experience as a researcher and her exciting work on image processing, detecting image forgeries.

Participants will have the opportunity to visit the exhibition “Mathematiques, informatique… avec elles !“, created by the French association of women in mathematics, femmes et mathématiques.


The discussion will be followed by a cocktail.
