Hakeem Oluseyi (pronounced oh-loo-SAY-ee), Ph.D. is a world-renowned astrophysicist who teaches, invents, and discovers. His story began in the impoverished Mississippi and the lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans, where he earned the moniker "the Gangsta Nerd" by staying true to himself and his values, and dreaming bigger than anyone around him could even imagine. Today, Oluseyi has five degrees, 80 publications, and over 11 patents. He is recognized internationally for his contributions to science, astrophysics, high-performance computing, and the 100 Year Starship Project. His mission is to pass on knowledge, process and results to the next generation and to promote service to humanity and country. Attendees can look forward to inspiring their own creativity, collaboration, and diversity awareness through STEM studies and story. They will take back the spark to inspire their own students to reach for the stars, no matter what the odds!
