Lea Ferreira dos Santos, an assistant professor of physics at Yeshiva University’s Stern College for Women, represented the United States at the third IUPAP International Conference on Women in Physics (ICWIP) in Seoul, South Korea on October 8-10. Dr. Santos was selected from a group of over 70 applicants to join the US delegation at the conference, which was established to address the severe underrepresentation of women in the field of physics. The ICWIP conference will consist of lectures by prominent international women physicists, workshops, and poster presentations on gender in physics and scientific work.
