Our world is built on science. And wherever you are – at school, at work or on your cellphone, your life is dictated by a science that few of us completely understand and even fewer of us are able to explain.
From virtual reality to extra-dimensional space, the history of the General Theory of Relativity to string theory, Professor Brian Greene brings complex ideas and concepts to audiences in exciting and compelling ways. A brilliant and entertaining communicator, Dr. Greene has been described by The Washington Post as “the single best explainer of abstruse concepts in the world today.”
A leading physicist and professor of physics and mathematics at Columbia University, Dr. Greene is renowned for his bestselling books, including The Elegant Universe and The Fabric of the Cosmos, both adapted into Emmy and Peabody Award-winning NOVA miniseries. His many media appearances include The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, NPR, Charlie Rose and the PBS NewsHour.
Greene is also co-founder of The World Science Festival (WSF), a global event of live and digital science programs that celebrate intellect and curiosity. Now in its tenth year, the WSF has been hailed by the New York Times as a “new cultural institution.”
