Who are we?

We are not many. But we are growing in number! And this directory is a testimony. A testimony of female scientists working in (and under!) pressure and all related fields: physics, chemistry, biology, geology, food science, technology...

Please help to keep this directory complete and up to-date.

We are grateful to all the suggestions we received from the community. More names will be added soon - stay tuned!

What for?

Are you a conference organizer? Part of a committee?

You are aware that there should be a fair gender representation in your High Pressure organization/event but cannot think of women in the field? We are indeed a minority, but there are much more of us than you think. We hope that this list will help you find someone who fits the scope of your organization.

Invite women to your meeting. Elect them for committees. Not only will you hear about some great science, but you will also be fighting agains discriminations and providing a great example of women in science and references to many women graduate students and postdocs in attendance.

How to be included

Just send an email to whp@lct.jussieu.fr with the information needed for the entry (see some examples here) and (optionally) a picture!
