Biography

Lisa Randall is an American theoretical physicist and a leading expert on particle physics and cosmology. She works on several of the competing models of string theory. Her best known contribution to the field is the Randall–Sundrum model, first published in 1999 with Raman Sundrum. However, the Large Hadron Collider has failed to provide any evidence to substantiate the validity of this theory. She was the first tenured woman in the Princeton University physics department and the first tenured female theoretical physicist at both MIT and Harvard University. She has also written two popular science books and the libretto of an opera.
