AUC Faculty Profile Cards Suarez Gonzalez Lismary

Suarez Gonzalez, Lismary | Physics

Since I was young, I had a knack for mathematics. During high school, particularly in my initial physics classes, I became captivated by observing how the mathematics I deeply enjoyed could be applied to everyday phenomena. This sparked an insatiable curiosity within me to comprehend the workings of the universe. Motivated by this, I resolved to study physics.I successfully earned my bachelor’s degree in physics from the University of Havana in 2017, followed by a master’s degree in physical sciences in 2020. From 2017 to 2022, I worked at the Institute of Mathematics, Cybernetics, and Physics in Havana, Cuba, as a junior researcher. My work primarily delved into theoretical physics, focusing on areas such as high-energy physics and astrophysics. The project I contributed to at this institution garnered significant recognition in Cuba. It received two prestigious awards: the Cuban Agency for Nuclear Energy and Advanced Technologies (AENTA) Award for the most notable Cuban scientific accomplishments in 2020, and the Cuban Academy of Sciences National Award for the most remarkable Cuban scientific achievements in the same year. Having now decided to embark on a career in teaching, my goal is to share my enthusiasm and unique perspective on physics. By doing so, I aspire to inspire others to embrace scientific curiosity and why not, show that physics can be really interesting a funny at the same time.
