Professor Daniela Calvetti co-organized a Power of Diversity in Uncertainty Quantification

The desire to provide young researchers, in particular female and members of minoritized groups, the opportunity to network with their peers and with more  experienced researchers around the theme of Uncertainty Quantification is what motivated  Dr. Daniela Calvetti, together with Dr. Annalisa Quaini (University of Houston) and Gianluigi Rozza (SISSA), to organize a satellite meeting to the SIAM UQ 2024 conference in Trieste, Italy on February 26, 2024. The event was called Power of Diversity in Uncertainty Quantification, to emphasize the welcoming spirit of the community. The activities during the event and support for some of the participants were possible with the support of SISSA and thanks to a grant from the NSF to Dr Calvetti and Dr. Quaini. The workshop attracted 85 young researchers with a high proportion of  women and individuals from minoritized groups. In addition to a high-quality scientific program that featured overview talks on different aspects of UQ, the organizers created an inclusive environment that enabled communication within and across seniority levels. In addition to Dr. Calvetti, MAMS faculty Dr. Somersalo and Dr. Brynjarsdottir participated in the program as mentors, poster evaluators, and panelists.
