Named one of the top 100 young innovators to watch by MIT’s Technology Review, Dr. Ainissa Ramirez of Newton’s Football says she enjoys “science evangelism,” lighting up the world by sharing scientific knowledge.
Don’t miss this mesmerizing material sciences expert as she evangelizes with The Alchemy of Us: How Humans and Matter Transformed One Another. In conversation with the Bay Area’s own Kishore Hari, Ramirez uncovers the ties between our human condition and physical materials - how what we make in turn makes us.
This insightful author explores scientific landmarks that had widescale, unintended, escalating consequences in how we think and innovate. In a salient example, Ramirez unearths the telegraph as a precursor to Twitter - both novelties shifted our sense of time, interpersonal connection, and even the length of our sentences.
In conversation with Hari, Ramirez shares delightful discoveries and their unintended consequences. Join two world class science minds as they question - well, everything - for The Alchemy of Us.
