Dr. Michio Kaku is one of the most widely recognized figures in science in the world today. Kaku is a theoretical physicist, best-selling author and popularizer of science. As the co-founder of string field theory (a branch of string theory), he continues Einstein’s search to unite the four fundamental forces of nature into one unified theory that will summarize all the physical laws of the universe. Additionally, he predicts trends affecting business, commerce and finance based on the latest research in science.
The author of numerous international bestsellers, Dr. Kaku’s newest book, The Future of the Mind – which hit #1 on the NY Times, Amazon and Barnes and Noble Best Sellers List, making it the #1 hardcover, non-fiction book in the country – illustrates the stunning breakthroughs being made in neuroscience, which are finally beginning to unravel the mysteries of the most complex object in the known universe: the human brain. His other book, Physics of the Future, is based on interviews with over 300 of the world’s top scientists, presenting revolutionary developments in medicine, computers, quantum physics and space travel that will forever change our way of life and alter the course of civilization itself.
A regular commentator on Tech-TV, he was featured in the full-length 90-minute feature film Me and Isaac Newton, which was nominated for an Emmy in 2001. Starting in 2008, he became a regular host on the Science Channel/Discovery Channel, hosting their Sunday lineup of shows. He also hosts his own national weekly radio program which airs in 130 cities in the US called Science Fantastic. It is the largest nationally syndicated science radio show on commercial radio in the United States, and perhaps the world. In 2009, the Science Channel announced that Dr. Kaku would host a 12-part series on TV based on his New York Times bestseller Physics of the Impossible.
He has written for Time magazine, The Wall Street Journal, Discover Magazine, New Scientist Magazine, Astronomy Magazine and Wired; and been quoted in Scientific American, The New York Times, The Washington Post, The London Daily Telegraph, The London Times, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Wired and Fast Company. He has also written several op-ed pieces for The Wall Street Journal and The Boston Globe.
Dr. Kaku holds the Henry Semat Chair in Theoretical Physics at the City Univ. of New York, graduated from Harvard University, received his Ph.D. in physics from the Univ. of Calif. at Berkeley and has been a professor at CUNY for almost 30 years. Dr. Kaku speaks at major business conferences about the next 20 years in computers, finance, banking and commerce. In particular, he has keynoted major conferences for major corporations, many of them controlling hundreds of billions of dollars in investments. He is a spellbinding speaker who mesmerizes and electrifies audiences with his visionary look into the future using his unmatched knowledge and research.
