Lisa Randall

Those attending the April meeting in Dallas can join interested members of the public for “An Evening of Cosmology and String Theory” with Lisa Randall, at 6:30 pm on Monday, April 24. The event takes place in the Landmark A Ballroom in the Hyatt Regency. Randall, a Harvard University physics professor, is the author of Warped Passages: Unraveling the Mysteries of the Universe. She is best known for co-authoring two seminal 1999 papers in Physical Review Letters with Raman Sundrum: “Large mass hierarchy from a small extra dimension,” and “An alternative to compactification.” Each has been cited more than 2500 times. Randall’s research has been covered by The New York Times, the Economist, the Los Angeles Times, and The Dallas Daily News, as well as Science, Nature and New Scientist. Warped Passages is her first book for a general audience.
