Luciana Luna Anna Lomonaco, an Italian mathematician, gets into the sea like a child: running into the waves. She earned her degree in mathematics from the Università degli Studi di Padova in Italy and completed her master’s in advanced and professional mathematics at the University of Madrid in Spain. She then journeyed to Denmark to obtain her Ph.D. in mathematics from Roskilde University. In addition to her love for swimming, Luciana is a soprano who practices lyric singing. When she’s not immersed in song or research, she devotes her time to reading, with a particular fondness for the works of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Currently, she is a lecturer at the National Institute of Pure and Applied Mathematics in Rio de Janeiro. Her belief that mathematics is a human language is no coincidence. Before she delved into the world of numbers, she studied philosophy.
