He graduated summa cum laude, and first in his physics class, from Harvard, and received his Ph.D. in theoretical physics from the University of Calif. at Berkeley. He has taught at Harvard, Princeton, and for over 30 years at the City Univ. of New York. He has been a visiting professor at the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton. He is the co-founder of string field theory. His Ph.D. level textbooks on string theory are required reading at many of the world's leading physics laboratories.

He has appeared on the Larry King Show, 60 Minutes, 20/20, Good Morning America, CNN, ABC News, CBS News, NBC News, and BBC World. He has done numerous interviews with PBS's Nova, the Discovery Channel, the Science Channel, the History Channel, the National Geographic Channel. Dr. Kaku has also hosted numerous science specials. He hosted a 4-part series about Time for the Science Channel. He hosted a 3-part series about the future called 2057 for the Discovery Channel. He hosted a 3-hour series called Visions of the Future for BBC, soon to air in the U.S. on Science Channel.

Dr. Kaku has written a number of highly acclaimed science books, including the best-seller Hyperspace (voted as one of the best books in science by both the New York Times and the Washington Post), Visions, Parallel Worlds, Beyond Einstein, Einstein's Cosmos and his latest Physics of the Impossible.

Parallel Worlds was a finalist for the prestigious Samuel Johnson Prize for Non-Fiction in the U.K. His latest book, Physics of the Impossible, was on the New York Times Best Seller's list for 5 weeks and is earning glowing reviews. He is currently hosting on the Science Channel a 12 part series based on his best-seller, Physics of the Impossible.

Dr. Kaku also hosts two national weekly science radio programs, called Explorations and Science Fantastic. Together, they reach 130 cities around the U.S. Science Fantastic is the only nationally-syndicated science radio show on commercial radio.

Dr. Kaku has written for Time, The Wall St. Journal, Discover Magazine, New Scientist, Scientific American, Astronomy Magazine, Focus Magazine and many others.

Dr. Kaku's goal in life is to help complete Einstein's dreams of a "theory of everything,"a single equation which will unify all the fundamental laws of physics.
