Kasha Patel (’12 Chemistry) is a scientist by day and a stand-up comedian by night. Why not?
Patel, the 2019 Young Alumni Award winner, has always had a passion for science. Her day job for the past 8 years has been as a scientist with NASA and lately, science journalism with the Washington Post. She also finds humor in science– telling “science jokes”, hitting the comedy clubs in the Washington, D.C., area as well as hosting science comedy shows. (her website https://kashapatel.com)
