Author and physicist Leonard Mlodinow (PhD, UC Berkeley) will explore how humans have won such a grand grasp of nature’s workings - and what deeper understandings may lie ahead. He is the author of five bestsellers including two co-written with Stephen Hawking: A Briefer History of Time and The Grand Design. Dr. Mlodinow’s The Drunkard’s Walk: How Randomness Rules Our Lives was an Editor’s Choice New York Times Bestseller and Notable Book of the Year, and was short-listed for the Royal Society Book award. He has taught at Caltech, has debated Deepak Chopra on ABC’s Nightline, and has written screenplays for Macgyver and Star Trek: the Next Generation. In 2013, Dr. Mlodinow received the PEN/E.O. Wilson award for literary science writing.
