Physicist Michio Kaku received a Bachelor of Science, summa cum laude from Harvard University in 1968 where he placed first in his physics class. He went on to attend the Berkeley Radiation Laboratory at the University of California, Berkeley and received a Ph.D. in 1972, and held a lectureship at Princeton University in 1973.
Kaku currently holds the Henry Semat Chair and Professorship in theoretical physics at City College of New York, where he has taught for more than 25 years. Presently, he is engaged defining the "Theory of Everything", which seeks to unify the four fundamental forces of the universe: the strong force, the weak force, gravity and electromagnetism. He has also been a visiting professor at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton and New York University.
Kaku is the author of several scholarly textbooks and has had more than 70 articles published in journals covering superstring theory, supergravity supersymmetry, and hadronic physics. Kaku's h-index, derived from the number citations referencing his work in academic literature is 22.
