“I’ve now been encouraged by many people to apply and so I did apply and I have now been made, full professor. I’m happy about that,” she said.
The 59-year-old Waterloo resident was awarded the prize in early October along with her former PhD supervisor Gérard Mourou, for their groundbreaking work in the field of laser physics. The two developed a laser technique called Chirped Pulse Amplification and first wrote about it in a 1985 paper.

Although it is obvious that there are fewer women researchers within these fields, does this gender ratio still fully account for the low number of female Nobel laureates? We examine whether women are awarded the Nobel Prizes less often than the gender ratio suggests. Based on historical data across four scientific fields and a Bayesian hierarchical model, we quantify any possible bias. The model reveals, with exceedingly large confidence, that indeed women are strongly under-represented among Nobel laureates across all disciplines examined.
