Brian Greene has degrees from Harvard and Oxford, where he was a Rhodes Scholar. He joined the physics faculty of Cornell University in 1990 and in 1996 joined Columbia University as a professor of physics and of mathematics. Brian is widely recognized for basic discoveries in superstring theory, including mirror symmetry and topology change, and he is known to the public through his general-level lectures and writings. His first book, The Elegant Universe, won Britain’s top prize for a book on science, and sold more than a million copies worldwide. His latest, The Fabric of the Cosmos, debuted to much critical acclaim, spent half a year on the New York Times bestseller list and inspired the Washington Post to call him “the single best explainer of abstruse concepts in the world today.” Brian has had many media appearances, from Charlie Rose to David Letterman, and his three-part NOVA special on The Elegant Universe was nominated for three Emmys and won a Peabody Award, as well as the Prix Jules Verne. He is co-director of Columbia’s Institute for Strings, Cosmology, and Astroparticle Phyics (ISCAP), and is leading a research program applying superstring theory to cosmological questions.
