Hakeem Oluseyi, Department of Physics and Space Sciences, was named a 2012 TEDGlobal Fellow, a prestigious appointment, which he shares with 18 other innovators from 17 other countries. The TEDGlobal Fellows program is sponsored by TED, a nonprofit organization devoted to “ideas worth spreading” through its two annual conferences in Long Beach, Calif., and Edinburgh, Scotland, and its TED Talks. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Al Gore, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson and British Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
The new class of TEDGlobal Fellows will attend the TEDGlobal 2012 conference in Edinburgh in June; the conference will feature about 70 speakers over four days covering an eclectic array of topics. The Fellows will also give TED Talks in a special Fellows session.
