Honorary Chairman of the Board • Director of the Institute of Science, Technology and Public Policy • Professor of Physics, Maharishi University of Management • International Director of the Global Union of Scientists for Peace • BA, summa cum laude, Dartmouth College • MA, PhD, Harvard University • Doctorate of World Peace, Maharishi University of World Peace • Residence: Maharishi Vedic City, Iowa

John Hagelin is responsible for the development of a highly successful grand unified field theory based on the Superstring, known as Supersymmetric Flipped SU(5). He was named winner of the Kilby Award, which recognizes scientists who have made "major contributions to society through their applied research in the fields of science and technology."

Dr. John Hagelin is Professor of Physics and Director of the Doctoral Program in Physics at Maharishi International University. Dr. Hagelin received his A.B. Summa Cum Laude from Dartmouth College in 1975. After completing his Ph.D. at Harvard University in 1981, Dr. Hagelin joined the theoretical physics groups at the European Laboratory for Particle Physics (CERN) and the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC), where he became actively engaged in fundamental research at the forefront of super symmetric unified field theories. Following his positions at CERN and at SLAC, Dr. Hagelin joined the faculty of Maharishi International University, where he established a doctoral program in elementary particle physics and unified quantum field theories. Dr. Hagelin has published extensively in the area of supersymmetric unified quantum field theories in such journals as Physics Letters, Nuclear Physics, and The Physical Review. In addition, Dr. Hagelin has gone more deeply than any other scientist into the profound connections between modern physics and the Vedic Science of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
