Author Bio: Mark Alpert

Author Bio: Mark Alpert

Mark Alpert majored in astrophysics at Princeton University, and wrote his undergraduate thesis on the application of Einstein’s theory of relativity to Flatland, a model universe with only two spatial dimensions. His resulting paper was published in the Journal of General Relativity and Gravitation in 1984 and has been cited in more than one hundred physics papers since. After earning an MFA in poetry at Columbia and working as a reporter, he became an editor at Scientific American, where he simplifies bewildering scientific ideas for the magazine’s readers, explaining concepts such as string theory, extra dimensions, and parallel universes. He also contributed articles to Popular Mechanics and wrote copy in the 1990s for CNN’s Moneyline. His short story “My Life with Joanne Christiansen” was published in the 1990s in Playboy. His first novel, Final Theory—the first in a series—is a thriller that incorporates many of the technologies and ideas found in Scientific American. He lives in Manhattan with his wife and children and is a proud member of Scientific American’s softball team, the Big Bangers.
