Just under 30 and Sabrina Gonzalez Pasterski has already had a full carreer. Her interest in physics is truly all encompassing. Gonzalez Pasterski is currently a theoretical physicist. At 16 she leaned into the practical applications and built her own airplane…and then flew it!

She is “a proud first-generation Cuban-American and Chicago Public Schools alumna”

More from Helena:

She was given academic freedom when in 2014 her and her colleagues discovered the “spin memory effect”, which may be able to detect/verify the net of effects of gravitational waves. Under that academic freedom, Gonzalez Pasterski also published her findings of the Pasterski-Strominger-Zhiboedov Triangle in Electromagnetic Memory in a 2015 individual paper. Stephen Hawking later cited her paper in 2016, while George Takei recognized her work on social media.

Among her a staggering list of achievements is being quickly cited by Stephen Hawking. Just a few more resources from:

Time, Wikipedia, and her own aptly named site PhysicsGirl
