Although the number of women pursuing careers in science has increased modestly over the last two decades, the National Science Foundation reports that only 28 percent of the workforce in science and engineering fields in 2015 were female.
Q-SORT is committed to encouraging more women to pursue scientific study and creating opportunities for them to find inspiration and mentorship from established leaders.
The Q-SORT Women in Science Lecture Series is an annual event featuring leading female scientists from around the world speaking on their scientific achievements.
We begin with Nahid Talebi, who works as group leader at the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research.
Her lecture, Coherent Control of Single Electron Wave Packets with Light and Nanostructures (http://www.qsort.eu/interdisciplinary-training-webinar-7/) will be broadcasted as a webinar on 03 July 2019, h.3:00 – 4:00 PM CET from the Q-SORT Facebook Channel via Facebook Live (https://www.facebook.com/quantumsorter/).
ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Nahid Talebi is a group leader at the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research in Stuttgart. Her research focuses on investigating near-field-enhanced electron-photon interactions using slow and fast electron microscopes. Her main interests include advancing the time-resolved electron microscopy methodologies and in-depth understanding of the dynamical interactions using time-dependent and self-consistent analytical and numerical techniques. Talebi has received her B.Sc. and M.Sc. from the University of Tehran in 2008 and 2011, and then she moved to the Max Planck Institute for intelligent systems in 2012 as an Alexander von Humboldt research fellow. In 2015 she joined the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research as a scientist, and in 2018 she received the ERC starting grant NanoBeam. Outcomes of her research until now are several high-level publications, patents, and invited review papers.
