Antony Garrett Lisi (born January 24, 1968), known as Garrett Lisi, is an American theoretical physicist and adventure sports enthusiast. Lisi works as an independent researcher without an academic position. He is a strong proponent of balance in life, in his case between scientific research and enjoyment of the outdoors.
Lisi is known for “An Exceptionally Simple Theory of Everything,” a paper proposing a unified field theory based on the E8 Lie group, combining particle physics with Einstein’s theory of gravitation. The theory is incomplete and not widely accepted by the physics community.
