Biography

Michael Guillen, Ph.D. can be seen weekly on The History Channel's popular new primetime series "Where Did It Come From?" Each week, he travels the world in search of the ancient roots of everything we presume to constitute modern life--from speed bumps and fire engines to dry cleaners and antibiotics.

For 14 years, Dr. Guillen was the Emmy-award-winning Science Correspondent for ABC News. His reports appeared regularly on Good Morning America, 20/20, Nightline, and World News Tonight--and were filed from the North and South Poles and everywhere in between.

Dr. Guillen has written hundreds of articles for numerous distinguished publications, including Science News and Psychology Today magazines and The New York Times and The Washington Post.

Dr. Guillen is also the best-selling author of two critically acclaimed books for the general public about mathematics: Bridges to Infinity: the Human Side of Mathematics and Five Equations that Changed the World: the Power and Poetry of Mathematics--which won a coveted Book of the Year Award from Publisher's Weekly. In his latest book Can a Smart Person Believe in God?, he tells of his lifelong attempt to reconcile his scientific career with his deeply religious upbringing.

Dr. Guillen is a member of the ultra-exclusive Explorers Club and sits on the Board of Advisors of the John Templeton Foundation, with whom he is developing a pioneering program to create and fund a new genre of science-related filmmaking. He is the president of Spectacular Science Productions, whose projects range from mass-market books to feature-length movies.

Dr. Guillen was born in East Los Angeles, earned his B.S. from UCLA and his Ph.D. from Cornell University in physics, mathematics and astronomy. He was an award-winning physics instructor for eight years at Harvard University.
