In the interview, professor Berloff provides an overview of her research on vortex turbulences. Along with her colleagues from Cambridge, the Russian born researcher created a new quantum particle called polariton and controlled hundreds of twister-like vortexes, a technology which could be used to measure movements to astonishing precision. The article also highlights the fact that the Russian born researcher was the first ever woman to become a Cambridge Professor of Applied Mathematics.

For someone who unleashed quantum tornadoes and then taught them how to dance across a fluid trapped on a semiconductor chip, Professor Berloff comes across in the article as quite a composed and calm person (just like she is in real life.)  Read it here (in Russian)
