Think Inc. Present: Dr Brian Greene

“The single best explainer of abstruse concepts in the world today,” – The Washington Post

Think Inc. in association with AUT and Loop are proud to bring physics superstar and master storyteller Dr Brian Greene to New Zealand this March for an evening of interdimensional exploration and travel through space-time.

Professor of physics and mathematics at Columbia University, Dr Brian Greene is well-known as one of the world’s leading science communicators. Focusing on string theory, mathematical physics and cosmology, Dr Greene’s goal is to universalise science and scientific interest, democratising it from the ivory towers of academia and down to the ground where the impact is greatest.

‘A Time Traveller’s Tale’ will see Dr Green bring his mind-bending (and mending) explanations for reality-altering discoveries to New Zealand for the first time. The evening will feature a lecture from Dr Green, followed by a question and answer session with the evening’s host, along with an audience Q&A.

Attending the prestigious Harvard University from 1980, and in 1987 receiving his PhD in Physics from Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar, Dr Brian Greene has dedicated the majority of his career to the concept of string theory. This work not only reimagines the very structure of our universe, but extends its ambition by attempting to combine understanding the interaction of all four fundamental forces of the universe (gravitational, electromagnetic, strong nuclear and weak nuclear) into one simple equation: a unified ‘theory of everything’.

When not carrying on this legacy of Albert Einstein, Dr Greene is renowned as one of the world’s leading science communicators, condensing the complex quandaries of the cosmos to enrich the public imagination with both fact and furor. Authoring The Elegant Universe (1999), The Fabric of the Cosmos (2005), The Hidden Reality: Parallel Universes and the Deep Laws of the Cosmos (2011), and the sci-fi reimagining of the Greek myth of Icarus with Icarus at the Edge of Time (2008), Dr Greene has also made a name for himself with a number of high profile media appearances, including consultancy for film and television, and even a cameo on The Big Bang Theory (which we won’t hold against him…).

Dr Brian Greene will be bringing his clear and charismatic speaking to New Zealand for the first time this March to help us get a grasp on concepts which might seem so far removed from our lives, yet are intrinsically crucial to human life.

Event will consist of a lecture from Dr Brian Greene, followed by a discussion with the event host, and conclude with an audience question and answer session.
