Lisa Randall - Top Physicist
Randall is professor of theoretical physics at Harvard University and
one of the most influential living scientists. In partnership with Raman
Sundrum, she has published two papers that have transformed the way
physicists think about the underlying structure of space, by showing
that the hidden dimensions required by string theory could be not just
large but infinite, provided space was warped in the right way.
Randall holds a BA and a PhD in physics from Harvard. Prior to
joining the Harvard faculty, she taught at MIT and Princeton. She has
earned Sloan, Department of Energy, and National Science Foundation
Young Investigator awards.
Randall has just completed a book "Warped Passages" which
will be available in Australia in August 2005. The book describes
Randall's current understanding of the structure of our universe.
