Dr. Michio Kaku
General Session 3
Theoretical Physicist, Author

Dr. Michio Kaku is an internationally recognized authority in two areas of the science world today. The first is Einstein’s unified field theory, which Dr. Kaku is attempting to complete. The other is predicting trends affecting business, commerce and finance based on the latest research in science.

Dr. Kaku graduated summa cum laude and first in his physics class at Harvard University and received his Ph.D. in physics from the University of California at Berkeley. He has been a City University of New York professor for almost 30 years and holds the Henry Semat Chair in Theoretical Physics.

His goal is to complete Einstein’s dream of a “theory of everything,” to derive an equation, perhaps no more than one inch long, which will summarize all the physical laws of the universe. He is the co-founder of string field theory, a major branch of string theory, which is the leading candidate today for the theory of everything.

He has authored many books including two New York Times best-sellers Physics of the Future and Physics of the Impossible.

Dr. Kaku does considerable public speaking on international radio and TV. He has appeared on Good Morning America, CNN, Fox News, BBC-TV, BBC-Radio and PBS’s Nova and Innovation. He has also appeared on the David Letterman Show, The Colbert Report, HBO’s Bill Maher Show, and has appeared on numerous science specials, including PBS’s Steven Hawking’s Universe, Science Odyssey.
