Brian Greene

American theoretical physicist and string theorist. Greene has worked on mirror symmetry, relating two different Calabi–Yau manifolds (concretely, relating the conifold to one of its orbifolds). He also described the flop transition, a mild form of topology change, showing that topology in string theory can change at the conifold point.

About Science

My mom says: "Why aren't you a doctor?"
And I'm like, "I am a doctor!"
And she's all, "No, I mean a real doctor."
She reads my books, but she says they give her a headache.
