At the Times she covered public education and filled a variety of editing assignments before joining "the dead beat" - news obituaries - where she produced artful pieces on celebrated local, national and international figures, including Hugh Hefner, Julia Child, Elizabeth Taylor and B.K.S. Iyengar. Woo is now a freelance writer and editor whose work has appeared in the Washington Post and other publications. Presented by the Oldenborg Luncheon Colloquium at Pomona College.

    A 2004 graduate of Harvey Mudd College (chemistry and biology), Kevin Esvelt received his Ph.D. in biochemistry from Harvard University in 2010. Esvelt is director of the Sculpting Evolution group at the MIT Media Lab, which invents new ways to study and influence the evolution of ecosystems. Prior to joining the MIT Media Lab, Esvelt wove many different areas of science into novel approaches to ecological engineering. He invented phage-assisted continuous evolution (PACE), a synthetic microbial ecosystem for rapidly evolving biomolecules, in the laboratory of David R. Liu at Harvard University. At the Wyss Institute, he worked with George Church to develop the CRISPR system for genome engineering and regulation, and he began exploring the use of bacteriophages and conjugation to engineer microbial ecosystems. Esvelt is credited as the first to describe how CRISPR gene drives could be used to alter the traits of wild populations in an evolutionary stable manner.

    Fame found Tavi Gevinson early -- right around her 13th year. Now 20, this editor-actress-writer-style-guru is entering her second decade as a creative and tastemaker. Founder of the online publication Rookie, Gevinson has also graced the stage in such productions as "This is Our Youth" and "The Cherry Orchard" and has been featured in films "Enough Said" and "Cadaver." She visits Scripps to talk with novelist Jenny Zhang, whose debut "Sour Heart" hit bookshelves this August, about her career, feminism and what it's like to have This American Life's Ira Glass as one of her mentors.
