He will lecture about his latest New York Times best-seller "The Physics of the Future," about how science will revolutionize our world in the next 10, 50 and 100 years.

For more than 25 years, Kaku has taught at The City College of New York where he holds the Henry Semat Chair and Professorship in theoretical physics. He received a bachelor of science (summa cum laude) from Harvard University in 1968.
