In order to illuminate the projects, collaborations and career developments of the HLF alumni, the HLFF Spotlight series features select examples in brief interviews or video documentaries.
Intercultural Science Art Project
Demian Nahuel Goos, an HLF alumnus who teaches at the Universidad Nacional de Rosario in Argentina, introduced the “Intercultural Science Art Project” to participants of the 7th HLF in 2019. Motivated by finding an accessible medium to explain his research in mathematics, Goos realized that artistic interpretation often offers a clearer window into complex themes. The diverse disciplines and cultures brought together by the HLF platform provided an ideal environment to put his theory into practice. Since then, Goos’ project has grown and developed with adaptations organized in other countries and institutions.
Alumni in Action
The fundamental intention behind the week of the HLF is clear: Provide a selection of the brightest minds in mathematics and computer science the space and time to make connections and inspire each other. At times, those connections will create ripples that flow into collaborations and projects, with some of those efforts leading to concrete developments. In order to showcase these inspirational stories, the HLFF Spotlight series was created. HLFF Spotlight: Alumni in Action features interviews and brief video documentaries where HLF alumni introduce their projects. Find out how those alumni have utilized the diverse programs und funding opportunities available to propel their projects and develop their careers.
