Brian Cox is the UK’s best known experimental physicist. His books and TV programmes have been read and watched around the world and credited with making science engaging and accessible to millions.
At the same time as playing keyboard with D’Ream, Brian obtained a first class degree and a PhD in High Energy Particle Physics. He is now Professor of Particle Physics at Manchester and one of the leaders on the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Geneva.
Not content with that, he has also become a hugely popular TV presenter and author. Brian’s TV credits include Wonders of the Universe, Wonders Life, and Forces of Nature, each looking at the fundamental science behind everything from stars and planets to atoms and microbiology. He has also presented Stargazing, Space Hoppers, The Big Bang and numerous editions of Horizon. His books accompanying the Wonders of… series have become huge bestsellers, as did his co-authored titles Why Does E=mc2? and The Quantum Universe.
An International Fellow of the Explorers Club Brian was awarded the prestigious Lord Kelvin Award for his work in promoting science to all. When not filming around the world, Brian writes for a range of newspapers and journals and co-hosts Radio 4’s Infinite Monkey Cage, the comedy and science programme. He and his friend and co-host Robin Ince examine the big and not-so-big science questions alongside comedians, scientists and celebrities both on air and on tour. Brian also serves as the Royal Society’s Professor for Public Engagement in Science.
From speaking at TED in the US to World Economic Forums in Davos and China, Brian Cox’s presentations engage, inform and entertain. With staggering images, his presentations show that science breaks down barriers and can both shock and excite. He also describes the breathtaking work at CERN and their attempts to use cutting-edge technology and engineering to recreate events fractions of a nanosecond after the Big Bang “in the hope of revealing the underlying simplicity of the universe.”
