It is my pleasure to introduce to you today Mélodie Mouffe, a young mathematician from Belgium whose career path so far has started in academia and ended in industry, and is somewhat the opposite of my own. I hope to present to you the different challenges faced by mathematicians in the two environments by discussing with Mélodie her experience in both, to give you a better idea of the tradeoffs between the two.
Mélodie’s interests extend beyond mathematics research into teaching, as well as music and acting. We were able to touch on a number of interesting topics in our conversation, which I hope you will enjoy! Here it is.
