PARIS, France — A Filipina quantum physicist on Thursday was named as one of the most promising women scientists of the L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science (FWIS) International Rising Talents.
Dr. Mary Jacquiline Romero was recognized for her research on using particles of light to encode information that could lead to secure information transmission.
