I’ve blogged here a few times about daughter Jessie, who graduated from Bryn Mawr at 17, finished her PhD in Applied Physics at Caltech right after her 23rd birthday, and has been a research physicist at IBM’s T.J. Watson Research Center since March 2010. Well, there she goes again: she’s just been named to Forbes Magazine’s “30 Under 30 Innovators in Science & Innovation.”
The January 16, 2012, issue of Forbes features lists of
the people who aren’t waiting to reinvent the world. FORBES, leaning on the wisdom of its readers and the greatest minds in business, presents the 30 disrupters under 30, in each of 12 fields, making a difference right now.
Who is reinventing the world? Who should you hire today? Who will you be working for in 20 years? Who, in short, under the age of 30, matters?
Those are the questions we asked Forbes readers and 12 star-studded panels of industry experts as we compiled our first ever “30 Under 30” listing of tomorrow’s brightest stars. From those thousands of nominations our staff reporters worked overtime to cull the list to the 360 ultra impressive up-and-comers listed here.
If I thought that her mother and I had much to do with her success I’d be bursting with pride. As it is … I’m bursting with pride anyway.
