About the Speaker:
A graduate of Harvard and UC Berkeley, Dr. Michio Kaku is one of the most widely recognized figures in science in the world today. He is an internationally recognized authority in Einstein’s unified field theory and is highly respected for predicting trends affecting business, medicine, finance, and our way of life, based on the latest research in science. He has authored three New York Times bestsellers, appears regularly on national and international TV, and hosts numerous science TV and radio programs. He has more than three million Facebook fans and more than half a million Twitter followers.
He holds the Henry Semat Chair in Theoretical Physics at the City University of New York where he has taught for almost 30 years. A co-founder of string theory, his goal is to complete Einstein’s dream of a “theory of everything” and to derive an equation-perhaps no more than one inch long-which will summarize all the physical laws of the universe.
