Eventbrite - Lincoln Isaac Newton Lecture

In this public lecture, the humanities and the sciences meet.  A historian of science and a physicist will shed some light on the discovery of Newton’s laws, some of the most famous and important in physics.  These laws not only ushered in modern physics and technology, but also have changed the way we think about human society and the Universe.

The lecture will be given in the new Isaac Newton building at the University of Lincoln.


Anna Marie Roos is a Reader in the history of science and medicine at the University of Lincoln. She has a  B.A. in Molecular Biology, M.H. in Humanities and a Ph.D. in History from the University of Colorado (USA). She came to Lincoln in 2013 from the University of Oxford, where she was the Lister Research Fellow.  Anna Marie is a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries, a Fellow of the Linnean Society of London, and a visiting fellow at All Souls College, Oxford. She studies the early Royal Society, as well as natural history, chemistry, and medicine in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Her scientific and historical work has been featured in Nature News, Wellcome History, the Guardian and the New York Times.


Fabien Paillusson is a Lecturer in the School of Mathematics and Physics at the University of Lincoln. He holds the degrees of M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics from the University Pierre and Marie Curie in Paris (formerly the Sorbonne), France. He came to Lincoln in 2015 from Durham University and previously also worked at the University of Cambridge and the University of Barcelona in Spain. He publishes on a wide range of topics spanning the physical and life sciences, from granular materials to DNA. His broader interests lie in Theoretical and Computational modelling, the Foundations of Physics, Physics and Maths Education, AI (Machine Learning and Automated Reasoning), Logic and the Philosophy of Science.
