Physicist Nathan "Nati" Seiberg helped develop the string theory, which argues that the universe is comprised not of individual particles but of elongated energy in tiny loops. Working with Edward Witten, Seiberg devised a series of partial differential equations that simplified the classification of four-dimensional manifolds. His work has revolved around field theory, gauge theory, Matrix theory, particle physics phenomenology, string theory, and supersymmetry.

Raised in Israel, Seiberg came to America in 1982, and holds dual citizenship.
