Supported through the Houghton Fund, Houghton Lecturers are distinguished visitors from outside MIT who we invite to spend a period of time, ranging from a week to several months as scientists-in-residence within our Program. During their stay it is customary for each lecturer to offer a short-course or a series of lectures on some topic of wide interest. Houghton Lecturer recommendations are welcome throughout the year. Contact Raffaele Ferrari with your suggestions.
