Flora Vincent is a scientist specializing in marine microbiology. A graduate of AgroParisTech, she is completing her doctorate at the École Normale Supérieure for the Tara Oceans program, in which she is interested in the interactions that diatoms establish with other members of the plankton. She now works at the Weizmann Institute in Israel where she studies the impact of giant viruses on the marine ecosystem. At the same time, Flora is particularly involved in the subject of diversity in science by co-founding WAX Science, an association that promotes science without stereotypes by creating and distributing innovative tools. She is co-author of the book "Artificial intelligence, not without it!" a book that explores how algorithms reproduce sexist biases.
