In this episode, Mary Ogunmodimu talks about being a lecturer in Mathematics at Lead City University in Ibadan, Nigeria, as well as her current PhD research, which focuses on the mathematical modeling of infectious diseases. We also hear about her experience at the 7th HLF in 2019, the lasting impression some of her interactions left with her as well as how it further shaped her career. Finally, she gives young researchers attending the upcoming 10th HLF some advice on how to best utilize their time at the event. The Heidelberg Laureate Forum has a single purpose: To provide some of the brightest minds in mathematics and computer science with the space and time to make connections and find inspiration. The HLFF Spotlight series shines a light on some of the brilliant young researchers attending the event.
