Being a woman scientist is a source of pride.

What do you do?

My job is to simulate phenomena existing in nature with software for example the flow of fluids.

Why did you choose this field?

Since my childhood, I have always loved scientific subjects such as physics, chemistry and mathematics, I was in scientific classes at Jules Ferry Faravohitra high school. I studied in public primary schools then in CEG. I also like to follow scientific documentaries, this is one of the things that pushed me to choose the physical stream at the University of Antananarivo. I thought that physics learns to observe, reason, experiment, innovate. My goal is to be a researcher to discover and understand the phenomena around us. This is why I continued until the doctorate.

What do you look at and think, "I wish younger me would have known this was possible"?

I wish younger me would have known this was possible to be a female scientist.

Why do you love working in STEM?

Best advice for next generation?
