A convocation with physicist Lisa Randall, one of Time magazine’s “100 Most Influential People” and winner of an Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Research Fellowship. Described by Newsweek as "one of the most promising theoretical physicists of her generation," Professor Lisa Randall has been widely honored for her scientific achievements. As one of the most cited physicists studying theoretical particles, Professor Randall’s research into dark matter and extra spatial dimensions has greatly improved our understanding of the Standard Model of particle physics.
