View Full Version here: : Lisa Randall

While there is a dearth of female cosmologists and particle physicists here is one spunky looking lady who has been named in Time Magazines top 100 scientists and thinkers.
She has the ability of communicating science to the masses as exemplified by her book Warped Passages: Unraveling the Mysteries of the Universe's Hidden Dimensions.
Sorry Craig while Ed Witten might be your hero, I prefer Lisa any day. She has the brains and the looks.

Hmm .. not bad looking from the 'Time' photo .. 48 years old, eh ?
Marital status ???
other vitals ?? .. unknown
Photo in Wiki (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lisa_Randall) .. tough looking !! .. wouldn't wanna wrangle with her on topics discussed here!
Love to read her book. A 'must get', by the sound of it !
Graduated with Brian Greene, eh ??
Ok.. Randall's Hamster it is ! ..for a day ..maybe more after I've read her book !
PS: The time photo is 3 years old !! I've always kind of favoured Carolyn Porco .. she's got a sense of humour and is more of a dreamer, though
decisions, decisions ..!

Her vitals? What do you want to know her figure measurements, IQ or both.;)
They didn't have supervisors like this when I was at Uni.:lol:
28-09-2010, 08:34 AM
We're in deep doo doo, now !
I've just hooked Suzy into looking at this thread !!
Look out !!! Head for cover !!!
PS: WE never had anyone like this when I went to Uni !!
28-09-2010, 08:42 AM
Now you've done it.
I'm getting out of here!
28-09-2010, 09:24 AM
That'll teach him !!
No more messin' with me !!
28-09-2010, 10:04 AM
Ah now that I've snooped out some of Lisa's papers, it looks like she's spent time working on all items (3) to (7) !:
From Steven's list of difficulty:
no slouch all right !!
28-09-2010, 10:13 AM
There are a few YouTubes featuring her as well … just watched a short one:
the comments are very inciteful as well … (esp #1) .. oops .. I meant insightful ! .. (pardon my spelling .. gotta work on that …)
PS: Wait until Carl gets a hold of this thread .. there'll be no stopping him ! Suzy .. where are you ??
28-09-2010, 11:23 AM
Yes, I do know about Lisa, and yes she is good looking:)
And yes, I did have a tutor in an undergrad 2nd year Comp Sci subject better looking than Lisa:):P
She had been a part time model when she was in high school...she was finishing up her PhD at the time.
28-09-2010, 11:25 AM
And I wish she (Lisa) was a member here...Alex would be toast (and so would the rest of the EU/PC crowd, including Peratt et al):):P
28-09-2010, 11:40 AM
Bit of an anti-climax there, Carl ..
Need to clear your mind of PC/EU, fella
mine is !!
28-09-2010, 11:54 AM
Got a lot more to worry about than those fools. But it would be funny to watch a tenured, world famous, Harvard Uni Chair of Physics tear these guys apart with just a few words:):):)
I doubt Peratt and Co would be game to open their mouths:):)

I was prepared to download the YouTube clip with my ultraslow dial up connection.
Wow a supporter of the very old Kaluza-Klein theory which is a precursor to string theory.
Smart, attractive and not exactly mainstream.:)

Pamela Gay (http://www.starstryder.com/about-me/) isn't hard on the eyes either.
A public school kid through and through, I received a B.S. in Astrophysis from Michigan State University in 1996 and a Ph.D. in Astronomy from the University of Texas in 2002. Today, I teach at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. Although my first research love was and remains variable stars (I even serves on the council of the American Association of Variable Star Astronomers), I have committed scientific adultery more than once to steal moments for exploring the secrets of galaxy evolution. Today, I am part of the Galaxy Zoo collaboration, and work with an amazing team of students helping writing the software and education content for the Zoo.

Not a bad CV !:D
28-09-2010, 03:12 PM
Just thought of someone....applied mathematician and actress Danica McKellar:):):):)
Or, how about Serena Kamber, a scientist at Manchester Hospital...
Or aerospace engineer at NASA, Summer Williams....
(scroll down the page on this one)

Maths book editor ?? Too young. I'm not too fluent in Maths !!
A bio-med scientist !!! The enemy of mankind !! Too young, also.
An Engineer !! Now that's what I'm talkin' 'bout
oh hang on .. too young also.
Lisa wins !!! Discovery credits: to Steven !!
28-09-2010, 03:53 PM
There's always young Sarah Kendrew (http://www.strw.leidenuniv.nl/~kendrew/)
but she's only a cartoon .. :(
28-09-2010, 03:59 PM
Oh .. Steven
. I'm afraid Uncle Ed won't be happy about her .. trying to mix Gravitation and Electromagnetism ??? A usurper !!
My hopes are dashed !!
28-09-2010, 03:59 PM
Pamela Gay has a voice that would melt butter.
28-09-2010, 04:03 PM
I can see a thread lock comin' up here !!!
Could be a first for Steven !!
28-09-2010, 04:15 PM
Then there's also that total smokin' hot BABE who was on Universe, and, was project director or manager of the WISE infra-red survey camera that went up recently.
I've drawn a mind blank and can't recall her name. But, oh, boy...
28-09-2010, 04:21 PM
Ah yes a fine example of biological science at work.;)
:lol: Okay, I'll play this game, I don't know where you guys get your taste from, but if I were a guy it would have to be Amy Mainzer from JPL.
And I'll share with you'll words of wisdom which my husband so often tells me (when I lust after gorgeous guys) "I reckon I would have a better chance at scoring". Amy where are you ....
28-09-2010, 04:30 PM
Amy Mainzer. That's the one I was referring to in my previous post.
28-09-2010, 04:33 PM
Oh my God !!!
too young !!
But her CV: (my eyesight's not as good since I joined IIS, so there maybe some typos .. I've copied it from her CV):
Not mainstream, either !!
28-09-2010, 04:34 PM
Yes, I would add Amy to my list as well:):)
H...I think this is her:)
28-09-2010, 04:35 PM
Not for me:):P
28-09-2010, 04:39 PM
Not for me, mate:):P
28-09-2010, 04:39 PM
It's tragic my Uni professors generally looked like what's in the attachment.:shrug:
28-09-2010, 04:41 PM
Too much spam for the science forum. Locking.
