Irene Valenzuela Agüí | 2021 Awards from the RSEF – BBVA Foundation

December 16, 2021 @ 08:00 17:00

Irene Valenzuela Agüí, Ramón y Cajal researcher at IFT, receives the Young Researcher Award in Theoretical Physics from the Spanish Royal Physics Society (RSEF) – BBVA Foundation, for “the high impact of her contributions in the study of the instabilities of non-supersymmetric models of string theory and their implications in Cosmology and Particle Physics. Her trajectory and her research results in international centers of excellence are a reference in the field of quantum gravity and string theory ”. 

The video contains the speech pronounced by Irene Valenzuela during the prize-giving ceremony that took place on December 14, 2021.

What makes me happier about this award is that it is an opportunity to bring this field of research close to the general public, to communicate the emotion I feel for Theoretical Physics, and to encourage everyone interested to read more on the subject. Or just read, about whatever you want, about whatever you like. What matters is feeding that little worm that we all have inside, which pushes us to ask questions and be curious, and be critical with the answers we receive. After all, that is Science. Thanks a lot.
