About Dr. Kaku:
Dr. Michio Kaku is the co-founder of string field theory (a branch of string theory), and continues Einstein’s search for a “Theory of Everything,” seeking to unify the four fundamental forces of the universe—the strong force, the weak force, gravity and electromagnetism.
Kaku is a bestselling author. His books include: Physics of the Future (2012); Physics of the Impossible (2009); Parallel Worlds (2006); Einstein’s Cosmos (2005); Visions (1999); Beyond Einstein (1995) and Hyperspace (1994). He is the author of several scholarly, Ph.D. level textbooks and has had more than 70 articles published in physics journals, covering topics such as superstring theory, supergravity, supersymmetry, and hadronic physics.
A popularizer of science, Kaku has appeared on television (Discovery, BBC, ABC, Science Channel, and CNN to name a few), written for popular science publications like Discover, Wired, and New Scientist, been featured in documentaries like Me & Isaac Newton, and hosted many of his own including BBC’s series on Time. Kaku also hosts two weekly radio programs heard on stations across the country: Science Fantastic and Explorations in Science.
Kaku received a B.S. (summa cum laude) from Harvard University in 1968 where he came first in his physics class. He went on to the Berkeley Radiation Laboratory at the University of California, Berkeley and received a Ph.D. in 1972. In 1973, he held a lectureship at Princeton University. He holds the Henry Semat Chair and Professorship in theoretical physics at the City College of New York, where he has taught for over 25 years. He has also been a visiting professor at the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton, as well as New York University (NYU).
