--------------------------------------------
Neil deGrasse Tyson was born and raised in New York City where he was educated in the public schools clear through his graduation from the Bronx High School of Science. Tyson went on to earn his BA in Physics from Harvard and his PhD in Astrophysics from Columbia.

Tyson's professional research interests are broad, but include star formation, exploding stars, dwarf galaxies, and the structure of our Milky Way.

In addition to dozens of professional publications, Dr. Tyson has written, and continues to write for the public.  He has published many books including:  Space Chronicles: Facing the Ultimate Frontier, Death By Black Hole and Other Cosmic Quandaries, and The Pluto Files: The Rise and Fall of America's Favorite Planet.

He has hosted several television and radio shows.  For five seasons, beginning in the fall of 2006, Tyson appeared as the on-camera host of PBS-NOVA's spinoff program NOVA ScienceNOW.  StarTalk Radio combines celebrity guests with informative yet playful banter.  Currently, Tyson stars in the 21st century reboot of Carl Sagan's landmark television series COSMOS which can be seen on the FOX network on Sunday evenings.

On the lighter side, Tyson was voted "Sexiest Astrophysicist Alive" by People Magazine in 2000.

Tyson is the first occupant of the Frederick P. Rose Directorship of the Hayden Planetarium, and he lives in New York City with his wife and two children.
