  • Clifford Victor Johnson (* 5. März 1968 in London) ist ein britischer theoretischer Physiker, der sich mit Stringtheorie, Schwarzen Löchern, Quantengravitation und verwandten Gebieten befasst. Er ist Professor an der University of Southern California. Johnson studierte an der Imperial College London mit dem Bachelor-Abschluss 1989 und wurde 1992 an der University of Southampton promoviert (bei Tim Morris). Als Post-Doktorand war er bis 1994 am Institute for Advanced Study und danach am Institut für Theoretische Physik der University of California, Santa Barbara. Ab 1995 war er Assistant Professor an der University of Kentucky und 2003 Professor an der University of Southern California. Er ist wissenschaftlicher Berater für Discovery Channel und wirkte in verschiedenen Dokumentationen, wie zum Beispiel The Universe (2007), mit. Johnson gründete das African Summer Theory Institute (ASTI), eine jeweils einmonatige Konferenz an verschiedenen Orten in Afrika, 2004 fand es in Kapstadt statt. Von ihm stammt ein Standardwerk über D-Brane. 2005 erhielt er die Maxwell-Medaille und 1997 einen National Science Foundation Career Award. (de)
  • Clifford Victor Johnson est un physicien théoricien anglais et professeur à l'université de Californie du Sud, au département de physique et d'astronomie (Department of Physics and Astronomy). Ses recherches portent sur la théorie des supercordes et la physique des particules, en particulier liées à des phénomènes fortement couplés. Il a précédemment travaillé à l'Institut Kavli de physique théorique à l'université de Californie à Santa Barbara, à l'Institute for Advanced Study et à l'université de Princeton. Il a reçu en 2005 le prix et la Médaille Maxwell (en) de l'Institute of Physics, « Pour sa contribution exceptionnelle à la théorie des cordes, gravité quantique et son interface avec la théorie des champs fortement couplés, en particulier pour ses travaux sur la compréhension de la censure de la singularité et les propriétés thermodynamiques, de l'espace-temps quantique ». Il a reçu un National Science Foundation Career Award en 1997. En 2005, le Journal of Blacks in Higher Education a répertorié Clifford Johnson comme étant le professeur de mathématiques, ou dans un domaine connexe, noir le plus fréquemment cité dans une université américaine ou un collège.

  • Clifford Victor Johnson (20 de fevereiro de 1968) é um físico teórico inglês. É professor da Universidade do Sul da Califórnia no Departamento de Física e Astronomia. Seu foco de pesquisa está na teoria das supercordas e na física de partículas, especificamente relacionados a fenômenos fortemente acoplados. Ele já trabalhou no Instituto Kavli de Física Teórica na Universidade da Califórnia, Santa Bárbara, no Instituto de Estudos Avançados e na Universidade de Princeton. Recebeu em 2005 a Medalha Maxwell do Instituto de Física, por sua notável contribuição para a teoria das cordas, gravidade quântica e sua interface com sua teoria de campo fortemente acoplado, em especial por seu trabalho na compreensão da censura de singularidades e as propriedades termodinâmicas, de quantidade de espaço-tempo. Ele recebeu o Prêmio Carreira do National Science Foundation em 1997. Em 2005, o jornal Blacks in Higher Education listou Clifford Johnson como o mais aclamado professor negro de matemática ou áreas afins em uma universidade ou faculdade americana. Graduou-se como bacharel em Física pelo Colégio Imperial de Londres, em 1989, e completou seu Doutorado de Filosofia em Matemática e Física pela Universidade de Southampton, em 1992. Ele também trabalha ativamente para promover a ciência junto ao público. Como parte desse esforço, ele aparece regularmente no History Channel na série The Universe e atua como consultor de ciência para o Discovery Channel. Johnson fundou o instituto African Summer Theory Institute, "que traz professores, pesquisadores e estudantes de todos os níveis juntos para uma conferência de um mês em um tópico de ciência diferente a cada ano para discutir, para a rede, para aprender".

He received a National Science Foundation CAREER Awardin 1997. In 2005, the Journal of Blacks in Higher Education listed Clifford Johnson as the most highly cited black professor of mathematics or a related field at an American university or college. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Physics from Imperial College London in 1989 and he completed his Doctor of Philosophy in Mathematics and Physics from the University of Southampton in 1992. He also actively works to promote science in the public and physics outreach. As part of this effort, he regularly appears on the History Channel series The Universe and acts as a science consultant for the Discovery Channel. Johnson founded the African Summer Theory Institute, "which brings teachers, researchers, and students of all levels together for a month-long conference on a science topic—a different one every year—to discuss, to network, and, of course, to learn."
