Randall was the first female theoretical physicist to earn tenure at Harvard, where she is currently a professor. She was also the first tenured woman in the Princeton physics department, as well as the first tenured female theoretical physicist at MIT.

Her remarkable bestseller, "Warped Passages: Unraveling the Mysteries of the Universe's Hidden Dimensions," takes readers into the incredible world of hidden dimensions that underpin the universe we live in while she demystifies the science.
