Meet Michio Kaku
Dr. Michio Kaku is one of the most widely recognized figures in the science world today. Kaku is a theoretical physicist, bestselling author and a key leader in making science more popular. As the co-founder of string field theory, he continues Einstein’s work to unite the four fundamental forces of nature into one unified theory that will summarize all the physical laws of the universe. Additionally, he is a futurist speaker predicting trends affecting business, commerce and finance based on the latest scientific research.
Dr. Kaku’s newest book, The Future of the Mind – which hit #1 on NY Times, Amazon and Barnes and Noble Bestsellers List (making it the #1 hardcover, non-fiction book in the country) – illustrates the greatest breakthroughs being made in neuroscience, which are beginning to unravel the mysteries of the most complex object in the known universe: the human brain. Kaku’s other book, Physics of the Future, is founded on interviews with the world’s top scientists, presenting revolutionary developments in medicine, computers, quantum physics and space travel.
Kaku has appeared frequently on Discovery, BBC, ABC, CBS, Science Channel and CNN, has been featured in the documentary Me & Isaac Newton and the BBC’s recent series on time and written for many popular science publications, including Discover, Wired and New Scientist. Dr. Kaku was also featured in the full-length 90-minute feature film Me and Isaac Newton, which was nominated for an Emmy in 2001. He hosts his own national weekly radio program called Science Fantastic- it is the largest nationally syndicated science radio show on commercial radio in the United States, and perhaps the world.
He has written compelling pieces for Time magazine, The Wall Street Journal, Discover Magazine, New Scientist Magazine, Astronomy Magazine and Wired and he has written cover articles for New Scientist Magazine, Astronomy Magazine and the Sunday London Times.
Dr. Kaku holds the Henry Semat Chair in Theoretical Physics at the City University of New York, graduated from Harvard University, received his Ph.D. in physics from the University of California at Berkeley and has been a professor at CUNY for almost 30 years. Dr. Kaku is a seasoned speaker at major business conferences discussing the next 20 years in computers, finance, banking and commerce.
