+ About the Performance
This program was recorded 09/30/2014 at Symphony Space.

The Secret Science Club is a science lecture, arts, and performance series based in Brooklyn which is about to start its 9th year.

The SSC hosts live science events for the general public, featuring subjects ranging fron Black Holes and Dinosaurs to Human Evolution and the Human Brain. Every month, leading scientists give talks on discoveries in their fields and unleash their research on an inquisitive audience.

Music and film are mixed in with the science during the evening, and there is at least one free event per month, along with other special programs.

The Secret Science Club is excited to be extending its borders NORTH to Symphony Space in Manhattan, bringing great science programming to a broader audience and continuing to give the public direct access to scientific information "straight from the horses' mouths."

The Secret Science Club was founded and is curated and hosted by Margret Mittelbach and Dorian Devins.  


+ About the Artists

Priyamvada Natarajan's research is focused on exotica in the Universe- dark matter, dark energy, and black holes. She is noted for her key contributions to two of the most challenging problems in cosmology: mapping the distribution of dark matter and tracing the growth history of black holes. Her work using gravitational lensing has provided a deeper understanding of the granularity of dark matter. Natarajan also works on the formation, assembly and accretion history of black holes. Priya also holds the Sophie and Tycho Brahe Professorship at the Neils Bohr Institute in Copenhagen and an honorary professorship for the life at the University of Delhi in India. Recipient of many awards and honors for her research, including a Guggenheim Fellowship and a Radcliffe Fellowship, her work has been featured on BBC, CNN, NPR, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, The New Yorker, and many other international media outlets. Priya is also deeply invested in the public dissemination of science, and frequently writes Op-Ed pieces. She serves on the Advisory Board of NOCA ScienceNow and is fervent proponent of numerical literacy. She is also a published poet.
