In late 2011, Lisa Randall curated "Measure for Measure," an exhibition at Harvard's Carpenter Center containing a number of artistic explorations of scale that echo and harmonize with Professor Randall's own reflections on the role scale plays in physics and in our understandings of the world around us.
Lisa Randall is the Frank B. Baird, Jr. Professor of Science in the Department of Physics. Her research connects theoretical insights to puzzles in our current understanding of the properties and interactions of fundamental particles as well as cosmology. She has developed new conceptual frameworks and models that explore extra dimensions of space, supersymmetry, dark matter, baryogenesis, and the Standard Model of particle physics. Randall's research also involves finding new ways to experimentally test and verify ideas, with a current focus on experiments at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN.
