Janna Levin: Are There Some Theories We Will Never Understand?
In a mix of mind-bending mathematical theory, logical paradoxes, and fascinating biographical analysis, Levin weaves through disciplines to present a fascinating depiction of how we view our world—and the people who helped shape that view. In her talks, Levin delves into complex ideas that she explains with great clarity. Her material often takes a great deal of time to process, but instead of conusing her audiences, she leaves them riveted, perplexed, and informed. As well as being an author, she is also a Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Barnard College of Columbia University and a new Guggenheim Fellow. She conveys her research, in all mediums, with a compelling narrative style that takes audiences on a journey through our world that sticks with them long after the presentation is over.
