Her recent research on identifying marine species with a new method of referencing based on DNA, won First Prize, the highest distinction available at the Super Expo-sciences Hydro-Québec, Quebec Final. She then presented her research as part of the Quebec delegation at the Canada-Wide Science Fair, at which she was selected to represent Canada at the MILSET Expo-science International 2017.
The article available in La Presse+ highlights Victoria’s preoccupation with the place of women in Scientific fields. It is important for her the young women understand that they have their place in Sciences.
