Professor Michio Kaku Bio
Dr. Michio Kaku is an internationally recognized authority on theoretical physics and the environment and is co-founder of String Field Theory. Dr. Kaku’s engaging speaking style makes him one of the world’s foremost STEM advocates and science popularizers.
A renowned science expert, Dr. Kaku speaks passionately about topics ranging from teleportation, telepathy, and global climate change to alternative energy, psychokinesis, perpetual motion machines, and a binary star located 8,000 light years away.
Dr. Kaku challenges audiences with new ideas, such as the basic physics of invisibility, something he says has already been demonstrated sufficiently and is now merely an engineering problem. His knowledge and experience in theoretical physics, the environment and futurism, along with his ease in communicating scientific theories and concepts to the public, have made him one of the foremost modern popularizers of science. From psychokinesis and telepathy, his science presentations are thought-provoking, engaging, and energizing.
Dr. Kaku graduated from Harvard in 1968 – summa cum laude and number one in his physics class. After receiving a Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley Radiation Laboratory in 1972, he held a lectureship at Princeton University in 1973. He then joined the faculty at the City University of New York, where he has been a professor of theoretical physics for 25 years.
Along with his continued quest for Einstein’s Theory of Everything, Dr. Kaku is the esteemed author of more than 70 articles for physics journals. His Ph.D.-level textbooks are required reading at many top physics laboratories. He is also the author of several best-selling science books, including Physics of the Future, Physics of the Impossible and Parallel Worlds. His books Visions: How Science Will Revolutionize the 21st Century and Hyperspace became international bestsellers.
An authority on theoretical physics and futurism, Dr. Kaku has appeared on the BBC, Discovery, the Science Channel, and the History Channel. He is a regular contributor to CBS: This Morning, FOX News, CNBC, MSNBC, CNN, and on programs such as The Late Show, The Tonight Show, The Daily Show and The Colbert Report.
