Hi! I’m a mathematician and illustrator, and sometimes go under the pseudonym E. A. Casanova. I’m originally from Chile, did my PhD in France and spent some time doing research abroad. After 6 years in Germany, I’m back to France and currently hold a Lecturer position at CY Cergy Paris Université (formerly known as University Cergy-Pontoise & EISTI) in France.
My work lies in the field of mathematical physics, at the interface of analysis and probability. I’m responsible for the blog “The RAGE of the Blackboard”, where I interview female scientists and reflect on life in academia.
In November 2018 I created the Twitter drawing-challenge #Noethember (on the life of Mathematician Emmy Noether), and I currently co-host the weekly drawing-challenge #mathyear in Twitter. I’m interested in graphic narrative, illustration, graphic recording and visual note-taking, and in applying all this to Science Communication. I post my work on social media: on Twitter as @coni777 and on Instagram as @E.A.Casanova.
For more on my origin story, see this interview by the European Women in Mathematics Association.
