Lisa Randall is an expert on particle physics, string theory, and cosmology. Her first book, Warped Passages: Unraveling the Mysteries of the Universe's Hidden Dimensions, was one of The New York Times's 100 Notable Books of the Year. A member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and a winner of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Research Fellowship, Randall has been a tenured professor at Princeton, MIT, and Harvard, and she is one of the most highly cited physicists in her field. Her work has been featured on the front page of the Science Times section of The New York Times, as well as the Economist, New Scientist, Science, Nature, The Los Angeles Times, The Dallas Daily News, a BBC Horizons television program, BBC radio, and many other news sources. Her most recent work is Knocking on Heaven's Door: How Physics and Scientific Thinking Illuminate the Universe and the Modern World, which Kirkus Reviews calls "a tour of subatomic physics that dazzles like the stars."
