Dr. Wanda Diaz Merced


Wanda Diaz Merced PhD from the University of Glasgow in Scotland. Currently working at the European Gravitational Observatory in Pisa, Italy. While performing as a postdoctoral fellow at the Harvard-Smithsonian center for astrophysics Wanda evidenced through careful perception experiments that the use of sound increases the expected sighted professional astronomer sensitivity to events in the telemetry that by nature are undetectable to the human eye. Wanda has worked with different subjects in the astronomy like variable stars, the solar winds, cosmic rays specializing on using audio to figure out the mathematics corresponding to the nature of space-physics phenomenae. Symmetrically while researching gravitational Wanda designs ways to use multisensorial perception for people with all disabilities to mainstream in Astronomy.
