Everything Everywhere All at Once
Directed by Dan Kwan & Daniel Scheinert (2022), Starring: Michelle Yeoh, Stephanie Hsu, Ke Huy Quan, 139 min., R
When an interdimensional rupture unravels reality, an unlikely hero must channel her newfound powers to fight bizarre and bewildering dangers from the multiverse as the fate of the world hangs in the balance.
Professor Elena Long joined the physics at the University of New Hampshire as a Post Doc in 2013 and joined the faculty as an Assistant Professor in 2017. A recipient of the JSA Promising Young Scientist Award and the JSA Post Doctoral Research Prize, Dr. Long is researching the ways that a tensor-polarized target can be utilized to understand nuclear effects with a focus on understanding how the quarks inside of protons and neutrons come together to form atomic nuclei. Alongside her physics research, Dr. Long has been working on increasing resources and diversity within physics. In 2009, she founded the organization lgbt+physicists, which has grown to include networking opportunities, an OutList, and worked with the American Physical Society (APS) to publish the LGBT Climate in Physics Report. She also serves as the Deputy Chair on the APS’s effort to create a Forum of Diversity and Inclusion.
