Crystal Dilworth has a B.S. in biochemistry from UC San Diego, and is currently working on her Ph.D. in molecular neuroscience in the lab of Henry A. Lester at Caltech.  Crystal is a violinist, former nationally ranked Rhythmic Gymnast, former professional modern dancer and choreographer, an active member of the Caltech theater community, and a member of the team behind PHDComics.com/tv. As a scientist and communicator, Crystal hopes to chip away the mystique of the academic "ivory tower" and reveal researchers and their work as human, relevant, and "cool."

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

TEDxYouth@Caltech was held on January 19, 2013, at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in Pasadena, CA. Learn more at http://www.tedxyouthcaltech.com
