Sara Del Valle

I'm a mathematical epidemiologist, a science geek, and fashion enthusiast.

I work on developing and analyzing mathematical and computational models for infectious diseases. I also study the role of social behavior on disease dynamics. 
I'm passionate about increasing the number of women in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) and making a better world for future generations. 
I strongly believe that you can be a scientist and still be fashionable.

About 8 weeks ago A potential solution to one of the seven most important problems in modern mathematics - The Navier-Stokes equations of fluid flow.

"Now, in a paper posted online on February 3, Terence Tao of the University of California, Los Angeles, a winner of the Fields Medal, mathematics’ highest honor, offers a possible way to break the impasse. He has shown that in an alternative abstract universe closely related to the one described by the Navier-Stokes equations, it is possible for a body of fluid to form a sort of computer, which can build a self-replicating fluid robot that, like the Cat in the Hat, keeps transferring its energy to smaller and smaller copies of itself until the fluid “blows up.”"

For more information go to: https://www.simonsfoundation.org/quanta/20140224-a-fluid-new-path-in-grand-math-challenge/

The paper can be accessed at: http://arxiv.org/pdf/1402.0290v2.pdf
