Inspirations + Transformations: My Journey from Cairo to Caltech

Tuesday, November 14, 2017
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Location: Avery Library

As a young child growing up in Egypt, graduate student Ahmed Soliman was inspired by Dr. Ahmed Zewail, the first Egyptian to win a Nobel Prize in science. Little did he know that one day he would meet Dr. Zewail at Caltech and transform into a scientist himself. He will share how he overcame challenges with language and education and his inspiration from meeting Nobel Laureates at Caltech as the building blocks of his career in science.  Come hear Ahmed's story, and you will be inspired, too.
