    Dr. Michio Kaku

    Dr. Michio Kaku is a PhD in physics, professor of theoretical physics at the City College of New York, best-selling author, and popularizer of science.

    Dr. Kaku stands as a prominent figure in theoretical physics, renowned as the co-creator of string field theory, a significant branch of string theory. Graduating summa cum laude from Harvard University in 1968, he distinguished himself by securing the top position in his physics class. His academic journey continued at the Berkeley Radiation Laboratory, University of California, Berkeley, where he earned his PhD in 1972, followed by a prestigious lectureship at Princeton University in 1973.

    In his relentless pursuit, he carries forward Einstein’s quest for a “Theory of Everything,” dedicated to unifying the four fundamental forces shaping the universe: the strong force, the weak force, gravity, and electromagnetism.

    Beyond his groundbreaking research, Dr. Kaku has left an indelible mark on academia. As the author of numerous scholarly textbooks at the PhD level, he has contributed to the field’s academic depth. With over 70 published articles in esteemed physics journals, his work delves into intricate subjects like superstring theory, supergravity, supersymmetry, and hadronic physics.

    Dr. Kaku’s multifaceted contributions continue to illuminate the forefront of theoretical physics, enriching our understanding of the cosmos and inspiring future generations of physicists.
