Crystal Dilworth


Fail Lab is hosted by Crystal Dilworth, a Ph.D. candidate in molecular neuroscience at Caltech. Before graduate school, Crystal trained as a professional dancer at the prestigious Ailey School of dance in New York City and she is an outspoken advocate for scientists, celebrating and nurturing their many passions. Now a rising star in science communication, Crystal first made waves in neon high heels while presenting a TEDxYouth talk on stereotypes in science. As a scientist and communicator, she hopes to chip away the mystique of the academic "ivory tower" and reveal researchers and their work as human, relevant, and "cool".
