Speakers

TEDxUCSD 2014 will feature 16 speakers from a variety of fields, ranging from Material Sciences to Sociology to global Peacebuilding. The speakers come from diverse backgrounds, from right here at UC San Diego to all the way from England, and draw from even more diverse experiences which have built the foundations of their talk. Each of these speakers will be sharing their "ideas worth spreading" and giving their own unique perspectives on our theme, "the power of one, the power of many."
