Director of Research at NPR’s Radiolab

The history of science is "brimming with tales stranger than fiction," says Latif Nasser, who wrote his PhD dissertation on the Tanganyika Laughter Epidemic of 1962. A writer and researcher, he's now the research director at NPR's Radiolab, a job that allows him to dive into archives, talk to interesting people and tell stories as a way to think about science and society.
