Argentine scientist Karen Hallberg was elected to the Council of Representatives of the Physical Society of the United States.
From January 1, 2021, the Argentine doctor Karen Hallberg will hold the Council of Representatives of the Physics Society of the United States . It is a non-profit organization whose aim is to promote and disseminate knowledge of physics through publications, congresses, scientific meetings and international programs. They also chose the Cordovan Gabriela Gónzalez . A real national pride.
Karen Hallberg is Rosarina, but grew up in the province of Jujuy, where she studied primary and secondary school at Teodoro Sánchez School in Bustamante . The Jujano people remember her with great affection because, in 1980, she was elected National Queen of Students , a very important event for the province that is celebrated during the month of spring.
After finishing high school he returned to Rosario, where he studied for two years his degree in Electronic Engineering at the National University of Rosario. Once he approved admission to the Balseiro Institute , a prestigious academic entity in science, he completed his training in physics and acquired his degree of graduate and, later, the doctorate in the same specialty.
Throughout his career he managed to reap great successes.Received the Lóreal-UNESCO International Prize of the Latin American Region “For Women in Science” , which is awarded to women that stand out in this field. He was incorporated as a member of the Council of the Academy of Science of Latin America (ACAL) and, as if that were not enough, on September 25 he will receive the Honoris Causa Doctorate from Siglo XXI University.
She currently works as an associate professor at the Balseiro Institute and is a researcher at the National Council for Scientific and Technical Research (CONICET). His scientific work is to investigate quantum properties. His innovative and creative techniques allowed him to perform successfully in this branch of physics . It was during his postdoctoral stay in Germany that he developed an advanced numerical method that he continued to refine in Bariloche.
When asked for advice for those young people wishing to study physics or science, he replied that “studying a scientific career allows you to have an augmented view of reality.”For Hallberg to venture into the natural sciences is exciting because it offers a unique way of thinking and getting to know the world.
Karen said that this recognition was a great honor and that, before she was appointed, she was pending the result of the vote. The happy news was given to her by the president of the Association, Phil Bucksbaum , who called her and congratulated her on the mention.
Regarding the performance of its new role, Argentine physics emphasized the importance of promoting international scientific exchange by enhancing collaboration, especially among young people.Her work as a counselor will aim to support the development of physics in countries with fewer resources as well as connecting with other scientific societies and social and political actors. In this context, he stressed that his desire is to close the gap between science, society and politics by seeking a science that advocates ethics and social responsibility of scientists.
It is an association in the United States that has 55 thousand professionals from the world of physics. APS, by its acronym in English, publishes in leading scientific journals, including Physical Review and Physical Review Letters .
Karen will share this recognition with the Cordovan Gabriela Gonzalez, who will also be part of the Council of Representatives. This mention will enable Argentine women scientists to participate in decisions about the activities of the Association , including scientific objectives and international programs. A sample of Argentine export talent.
