DescriptionSpoiler alert: math and computing.

These subjects ended up being useful in the two very different careers Cecilia Aragon pursued. They were also her personal superpowers, used to overcome agonizing fears and accomplish life goals.

In this talk she presents examples from her life and work in aviation, astrophysics, and data science using images, video, and even equations. She’ll also talk about overcoming expectations as one of the few women — or Latinas — in both of her careers.
