About Coralie Colmez

Coralie Colmez got her love of math from two mathematician parents and a degree at Cambridge University. She talks and writes about math for the general public, and teenagers in particular.

She is the author of ‘The Irrational Diary of Clara Valentine’, an entertaining YA novel which also introduces beautiful, high-level mathematical concepts to its readers; and the co-author (with her mother Leila Schneps) of ‘Math on Trial’, a non-fiction book describing ten criminal trials during which mathematics was used as evidence, and the calculations were wrong.

In her day job, Coralie is the co-founder and director of Unifrog, an online careers and destinations platform that helps students explore, choose and reach their best next step after high school.
