First speaker Kathryn Hess!

YSS19 has its first speaker and it’s a bit shot:

Kathryn Hess Bellwald
(Professor of Mathematics @ EPFL, Switzerland)

Kathryn Hess is a professor at the École Polytechnique Fédéral de Lausanne (EPFL). Trained as a topologist, a branch of pure mathematics that concerns itself with the study of shapes, she is also known for her application of methods of algebraic topology to neuroscience.

We are thrilled to see a bridge builder between mathematics in its purest form and applied neuroscience!
