EVENT TYPE: Keynote & Plenary Talks

TIME: 8:30AM - 10:00AM

Presenter(s):Brian Greene

ROOM:New Orleans Theater


Brian Greene a Physicist, string theorist and author of The Elegant Universe. He is one of the world’s leading theoretical physicists and a brilliant, entertaining communicator of cutting-edge scientific concepts. The Washington Post described him as “the single best explainer of abstruse concepts in the world today.”

In The Elegant Universe he recounted how the theories of general relativity and quantum mechanics transformed our understanding of the universe, and introduced us to string theory, a concept that might be the key to a unified theory of the universe. The book sold more than a million copies and became an Emmy and Peabody Award-winning NOVA special that he hosted.

His second book, The Fabric of the Cosmos, spent 6 months on The New York Times bestseller list and was adapted into a 4-part NOVA mini-series broadcast in November 2011. His third book, Icarus at the Edge of Time, is a futuristic retelling of the Icarus myth, in which a boy travels not to the Sun but to a black hole. This visually stunning fable for children has recently been adapted for stage presentation with an orchestral score by Philip Glass, and premiered Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall.

Brian’s latest book, Hidden Reality: Parallel Universes and the Deep Laws of the Cosmos, explores the strange and exciting possibility that our universe may be one of many populating a grand “multiverse.”

He has had many media appearances, from Nightline and Charlie Rose to The Late Show with David Letterman, and has made cameo appearances in the films Frequency, Maze, and The Last Mimzy and the television show The Big Bang Theory.

A graduate of Harvard and a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford, he is a Professor in both Physics and Mathematics at Columbia University. The World Science Festival, co-founded by Greene, premiered in New York City in the Spring of 2008 as an annual celebration of science that brings together great minds in science, business, government and the arts.
