Speaker information

Hiranya Peiris, UCL

CERN will be hosting a TEDx event, with the theme ‘Multiplying Dimensions’, on 3 May 2013. Even though the TEDxCERN main stage will be in Geneva, we would like to share these ideas through webcast session hosted by nobel prize winner George Smoot.

TEDxCERN has an impressive list of speakers, including UCL's Hiranya Peiris on the Early Universe. Other speakers include George Church, who will talk about the recent breakthroughs using DNA; Lee Cronin on Networking Chemistry; Chris Lintott (formerly of UCL Astrophysics) on Citizen Science; Marc Abrahams on Improbable Research; Ian Foster on Big Data and many more.

The UCL Institute for Origins and Department of Physics and Astronomy are hosting a "simulcast". Join us to watch the talks live from CERN on a high-quality webcast, and discuss the subjects with UCL researchers. Your hosts will be Nikos Konstantinidis and Ofer Lahav.
