Super Humans - Mikaela Irene Fudolig
Mikaela Irene Fudolig (born 1991 or 1992) is known for being a Filipina former child prodigy. Fudolig graduated at 16 years old as a summa cum laude with a B.S. in Physics with a general weighted average of 1.099 from the University of the Philippines. She has also received a degree from the National Institute of Physics. She was only 11 when she entered college under an experimental program to test the impact of gifted children entering a university on their emotional and social development. Fudolig studied in Quezon City Science High School before being pulled into the test program. She is currently a PhD student and professor at the same university—with interest in econophysics, mathematical modeling of behavior in systems, and biological systems. She actively encourages her graduates and other university students in the Philippines to stay and rebuild the country as “brave pioneers” instead of leaving for foreign shores.
