Meet Laura Mersini-Houghton
The origins of the universe are being uncovered in Chapel Hill, NC thanks to Laura Mersini-Houghton, a cosmologist and theoretical physicist at the University of North Carolina. Her work delves even deeper into how our world came to be than the Big Bang theory.
The Albanian-born scientist joins host Frank Stasio to talk about her research, the answers she’s found in the cosmos, how scientific theories become mainstream and the challenge of working as a woman in the field of physics.
