LA High Table with Dr. Sean Carroll (SOLD OUT)
Join us for "A Universe of Possibility" with Dr. Sean Carroll.

Yale, MIT, and Princeton alums are invited to join us for the third event in a new every-other-month series aimed at showcasing exciting work by dynamic speakers in an intimate setting.  We especially welcome established alums in fields relevant to the talk and younger alums in all fields.  This third Los Angeles High Table event features a talk by Dr. Sean Carroll on the behavior and development of our universe.

Event format: 30 minutes mingling, 60 minute High Table Program featuring Sean Carroll, 60 minutes networking and discussion post-talk with refreshments.

About the speaker: Dr. Sean Carroll is a research professor in the Department of Physics at the California Institute of Technology.  His research focuses on the fundamental laws of nature, especially as they connect to cosmology -- the actual behavior of the universe we observe.  Dr. Carroll has appeared on the History Channel's "The Universe", Science Channel's "Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman", and Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report".  He has consulted for film and television, including "Bones" and "Thor" and recently helped found a series of living room talks called "Science Soiree Los Angeles."

Dr. Carroll loves giving talks to all kinds of audiences, and has now spoken on every continent except for Antarctica.  He has been invited to speak at conferences and activities devoted to philosophy, theology, engineering, medicine, design, paleontology, education, politics, media, film, art, and literature.
