Maria Fernanda Nieva
Bamberg, Germany

María Fernanda Nieva was born in 1974 in Tucumán, Argentina. The studies of physics at the Universidad Nacional de Tucumán were accomplished in 2002, with the diploma thesis: "Determinación de Temperatura Efectiva y Estado de Evolución de Estrellas tipo B, A y F". The Ph.D. study on quantitative spectroscopy of OB stars was made in a cotutelle programme between Observatório Nacional (Brazil) and the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (Germany). To date she is (co-)author of 10 scientific papers in refereed journals and conference proceedings.
