92nd Street Y: Lisa Randall with Bill Nye the Science Guy on Dark Matte

Lisa Randall’s Speech Topics

  • Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs: The Astounding Interconnectedness of the Universe

    This talk is a sweeping overview of how the universe, the galaxy and the solar system have developed, as well as the critical role that dark matter—matter that doesn’t have any discernible interactions with light—has played. As we reflect on cultural, political and environmental changes to the planet today, it is useful to have in mind the billions of years of cosmological history that precede it. Professor Randall will present concepts in theoretical physics through a lens of contemporary issues that work to explain the nature of physical reality in a resonating and relevant way with non-scientist audiences.

  • Lessons on Leadership from the Scientific World

    In this talk, Professor Lisa Randall discusses how the scientific method can be applied to the business world by examining how scientists develop and try out new ideas, what they mean by progress, how they treat failure, how they deal with resistance to new ideas, and the constructive interplay of competition and collaboration. The audience will leave with a new approach and takeaways on how scientific practices can help businesses foster creativity and innovation within their companies.
