Visiting physicist | Janna Levin

The Glass department joins with the Nature Lab in welcoming Janna Levin, Claire Tow professor of physics and astronomy at Barnard College, Columbia University. She is also chair and founding director of the science studios at Pioneer Works. A Guggenheim Fellow, Levin has contributed to an understanding of black holes, the cosmology of extra dimensions and gravitational waves in the shape of spacetime. She is the presenter of the NOVA feature Black Hole Apocalypse, aired on PBS—the first female presenter for NOVA in 35 years—and author of Black Hole Survival Guide (Knopf, 2020), among other books.

Partial funding for this lecture series is provided by the Page Hazlegrove Fund and by the Hyundai Research Collaborative.
