Mitch Golden has been active in STEM since before it was cool. He is a graduate of the Bronx High School of Science and Princeton University. He got his PhD in theoretical physics from the University of California, Berkeley, and then went on to postdocs at Fermi National Accelerator Lab and Boston University before becoming a physics professor at Harvard. Physicists were longtime users of the Internet, and when the World Wide Web was first deployed in the 1990s, he shifted gears and changed his career to Web technology. He has been a senior technologist at Agency.com, Gucci, Barneys New York, and The Princeton Review. Director University Relations.
