Elena E. Giorgi is a scientist, award-winning author and IPA-awarded photographer. She likes to say she spends her days analyzing genetic data, her evenings chasing sunsets and her nights pretending she’s somebody else.
Born in Scotland where her Italian parents lived while her father was working on his PhD at the University of Edinburgh, Giorgi was raised in Tuscany and graduated from the University of Pisa having majored in Theoretical Mathematics. She has Masters of Science Degrees in Theoretical Mathematics and Biostatistics and a PhD in Applied Mathematics. She is currently working as a Computational Biologist at the Los Alamos National Laboratory.
“Math is pure and beautiful,” Giorgi said. “It’s like a Michelangelo painting—perfect all around. You can’t be wrong when you follow the steps dictated by logic.”
