Ximena Vega es elegida como la única mexicana parte de las 100 mujeres en ir a la Antartida a través del programa Australiano Homeward Bound.


Antarctic scientist / Glaciologist, University of Magallanes / University of Stirling

Ximena has just graduated from an MSc degree in Antarctic Sciences with a Glaciology specialisation at the University of Magallanes. She will be starting her PhD at the University of Stirling this year to continue her research in Bio-optics applied to the dynamics between glaciers and the ocean, and the role these systems play in the carbon cycle in polar regions.

She has participated in two Antarctic scientific expeditions (2019 and 2020) led by the Chilean Antarctic Institute (INACH), and she travelled to Antarctica with NASA’s IceBridge mission in 2018. Ximena is also a photographer; she deeply believes in the synergy between science and art as an infallible tool for climate change awareness.

Meet the 100 AMAZING women in STEMM who are joining Team HB6. All have a background and/or qualification in science, technology, engineering, mathematics or medicine (STEMM), and they come from all over the globe, from a broad range of professions, occupations and career levels, and have been selected based on their potential to demonstrate a new model of leadership, creating better outcomes for the planet.
