Marithania Silvero Casanova receives Vicent Caselles research prize for disproving a conjecture in knot theory

Marithania Silvero Casanova was not yet born when Louis Kauffman stated in 1983 the conjecture that established that two particular families of knots were equivalent. Silvero, born in Huelva in 1989, refuted the conjecture in 2015. Her finding has been recognized with the Vicent Caselles research prize, awarded by the Royal Spanish Mathematical Society and the BBVA Foundation.
