Andreas Albrecht, Professor and Chair, Department of Physics, UC Davis      
Brian Greene, a professor of physics and mathematics at Columbia University, has a gift for creating prose as elegant as the theories he explains. A string theorist, he peels away the layers of mystery of the universe in palatable and even inspirational language. Greene is the author of several best-selling and non-technical books on the subject including The Elegant Universe, a Pulitzer finalist, and The Fabric of the Cosmos—each of which has been adapted into a NOVA mini-series. Greene believes science must be brought to general audiences in new and compelling ways. In this engaging and beautifully accessible talk, Greene takes the audience on a delightful, lucid voyage through modern physics that brings us closer than ever to understanding how the universe works.
