William Bialek, a nationally renowned physicist who studies the extremes of physical phenomena and their connection with living systems, will speak at Saint Michael’s College on Tuesday, April 4 at 5:30 p.m. in the Roy Event Room of the Dion Family Student Activity Center.

This free lecture, open to the public, is designed for a general audience and is entitled “More perfect than we imagined: A physicist's view of life.” Bialek will tour the beautiful natural phenomena that operate near the limits of what is allowed by the laws of physics, from microscopic events inside a developing embryo to human perception and decision-making.
