Brian Keating has been a professor of physics at the Center for Astrophysics & Space Sciences (CASS) in the Department of Physics at the University of California, San Diego since 2004. He is a public speaker, inventor, and an expert in the study of the universe’s oldest light, the cosmic microwave background (CMB), using it to learn about the origin and evolution of the universe. Keating is a pioneer in the search for the earliest physical evidence of the inflationary epoch, the theorized period of expansion of space in the early universe directly after the Big Bang. Keating is the creator of the first experiment to search for direct evidence of inflation using the cosmic microwave background. This experiment, BICEP2, and its aftermath, are described in Keating’s book, Losing the Nobel Prize, published in April 2018, by W.W. Norton.
