Professor Nobuko Yoshida has been chosen to receive a Suffrage Science award, celebrating the achievements of women in STEM.
Professor Yoshida was honoured at the third Suffrage Science Awards for Mathematics and Computing online celebration on Friday 6 November 2020.
11 mathematicians and computer scientists, who work in STEM fields across the world, were recognised for their scientific achievements and the work they do to promote maths and computing for the next generation. The Suffrage Science awards scheme, curated by the MRC London Institute of Medical Sciences, celebrates women in STEM subjects, and encourage others to enter scientific fields and reach senior leadership roles.
The 11 awardees are chosen by the previous award holders for their scientific achievements and ability to inspire others. This scientific “relay” takes place every two years and creates an inspiring network of women connected by their link to the scheme.
