Laura Mersini-Houghton

The universe chaser.

Laura is one of the rare scientists in the world who dares to believe that our universe is not alone, but there are infinite parallel worlds which surround us!

Laura is a theoretical physicist-cosmologist and professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She has worked on a variety of topics on the particle physics-cosmology interface.

As a citizen of the United States of America with Albanian origin, she holds a B.S. Degree from the University of Tirana, Albania and her M.Sc. from the University of Maryland, U.S.A. In 2000, she was awarded a Ph.D. by the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee.

After proving the existence of multiple universes besides the one in which Planet Earth is, Laura exposed the world to the greatest dilemma: Which universe are we in?
