Dr. Lawrence Krauss received his undergraduate degrees in mathematics and physics from Carleton University in Ottawa Canada, and a Ph.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1982.
After a three year stint in the Harvard Society of Fellows, he was a professor at Yale University for eight years and then, became the Ambrose Swasey Professor of Physics, professor of astronomy, and Chairman of the Physics Department at Case Western Reserve University. He has held endowed positions at a variety of Universities around the world in departments ranging from physics and astronomy, to earth and space exploration. He retired from academia in 2019 at age 65 when he became President of The Origins Project Foundation, an independent non-profit foundation furthering the public understanding of science, and enhancing connections between science and culture. That year he also became host of The Origins Podcast with Lawrence M. Krauss, with extended video dialogues with the most interesting people in the world.
His research focuses on the beginning and end of the Universe. Among his contributions to the field of cosmology, Dr. Krauss helped lead the search for dark matter, and proposed the existence of dark energy in 1995, three years before its observational discovery, which received the Nobel Prize in 2011.
