The Caltech Effect: Training Ground

Two alumni are traveling to far-flung corners of the world to advance their research

Newly minted PhDs Jessica Hinojosa and Abigail "Abby" Crites (BS '06) are traveling to far-flung corners of the world to advance their research and learning how to be leaders in their fields—from running a laboratory to searching for new questions to explore.
