William Bialek

When: Tue., April 4, 5:30 p.m. 2017

Every few years, the national Phi Beta Kappa Visiting Scholar Program sponsors a talk at Saint Michael’s College with the goal of raising the bar for intellectual discourse among scholars, faculty, students and community members. This year, that visiting scholar is Princeton University’s John Archibald Wheeler/Battelle Professor in Physics, William Bialek. According to a St. Mike’s press release, the theoretical physicist’s nationally recognized research “contributes to the understanding of coding and computation in the brain.” Curious minds converge at the college for Bialek’s talk — which is geared toward a general audience — entitled “More Perfect Than We Imagined: A Physicist’s View of Life.”
