Mahider Gessesse, '23
Through Caltech's "Break Through: Together We Change the World" campaign, Mahider was able to research an issue she's passionate about. "I wanted to bring a hard science approach to treating problems that up until recently have just been left to psychiatry and psychology. That's the main reason I picked computational and neural systems."
Toussaint Pegues, BS '22
Toussaint took what he learned at Caltech to the big screen this past February as a quarterfinalist on Jeopardy's National College Championship. "I went in with the knowledge I already had an did my best. I knew the answers to more questions than I got to answer, but the categories weren't quite my strong suit, certainly no engineering questions. But still, the whole thing was pretty cool."
