Meet Maria Vittoria, Inés and Lauren!

To celebrate Women’s Day 2021 and the 50th anniversary of women’s right to vote in Switzerland, the Swiss NCCRs (National Centres of Competence in Research) want to show you who our women researchers are and what a day in their job looks like. The videos are targeted at women and girls of school and undergraduate age to show what day to day life as a scientist is like and make it more accessible. Each NCCR is hosting a week where they publish several videos covering multiple scientific disciplines and this week it’s the turn of NCCR Digital Fabrication.

The videos cover a wide range of subjects, including (but not limited to) maths, physics, microbiology, psychology and planetary science, but this week we have three women who work with robots.

Maria Vittoria Minniti is a robotics engineer and PhD student, she enhances mobile manipulation capabilities in under-actuated robots.

Inés Ariza is an architect, she uses a robot to 3D print custom metal joints for complex structures.

Meet Lauren Vasey is an architect and engineer, she develops robotic building processes for architecture and construction.

 

Head over to YouTube or Instagram (EnglishGerman or French) to see the women featured in the #NCCRWomen campaign.
