Many researchers had to leave Ukraine in the wake of the Russian attack on the country. TUM has created a special Fellowship program at it’s IAS to accommodate ten researchers.
Meet three of these scientists in this special episode of "We are TUM": Dr. Olya Popovych from Ivano-Frankivsk, Prof. Julia Yamnenko from Kyiv and Oksana Chernova, Ph.D., also from Kyiv. As Fellows of the Institute for Advanced Study (IAS), each of these scientists has joined TUM – at the respective chairs for Non-Destructive Testing, for Transportation Systems Engineering and for Mathematical Statistics. They share with us their stories of how they experienced the beginning of the war and how it felt to flee their country, in some cases together with children and older relatives, and mostly without a specific destination in mind.
