World Renowned Physicist, Brian Greene to Speak at Stony Brook

B_greene_color-200x300

Physicist Brian Greene will deliver the inaugural talk for the Della Pietra Lecture Series at the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics. 


Dr. Greene is Professor of Physics and of Mathematics at Columbia University where he co-directs the Institute for Strings, Cosmology, and Astroparticle Physics. He is widely recognized for a number of groundbreaking discoveries in his field of superstring theory, including the co-discoveries of mirror symmetry and of topology change. His first book, The Elegant Universe was finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, and his more recent books, The Fabric of the Cosmos and The Hidden Reality, were both New York Times bestsellers. Dr. Greene’s three-part NOVA special based on The Elegant Universe was nominated for three Emmy Awards and won a Peabody Award. With Emmy-award winning journalist Tracy Day, Greene co-founded The World Science Festival, which was hailed by the New York Times as a “new cultural institution.” 

The lecture is open to the public and is geared for a general audience. High school and middle school students interested in the STEM (Science, Technology, Mathematics and Engineering) fields are especially encouraged to attend.
