Five Female Scientists in Developing Countries Get Major Award

The 2018 OWSD-Elsevier Foundation Awards for Early-Career Women Scientists in the Developing World went to five researchers in the physical sciences field: Hasibun Naher (BRAC University in Bangladesh, for her work in applied mathematics), Germaine Djuidje Kenmoe (University of Yaounde 1 in Cameroon, for physics), Silvia González Pérez (Private Technical University of Loja in Ecuador, for theoretical and computational chemistry), Dawn Iona Fox (University of Guyana, for environmental and material chemistry), and Witri Wahyu Lestari (UNS in Indonesia, for organometallic and coordination chemistry).

“These scientists are living proof that, if given the opportunities and support, women all over the developing world can become leaders in their field. I salute them all and commend them for their commitment to their fields of study and to the improvement of the lives of men, women and children in their communities. They serve as role models for all young girls and women aspiring to achieve success in their fields,” says Jennifer Thomson, president of the Organization for Women in Science for the Developing World (OWSD).
