Lawrence Maxwell Krauss (born May 27, 1954) is an American-Canadian theoretical physicist and cosmologist who previously taught at Arizona State University, Yale University, and Case Western Reserve University. He founded ASU's Origins Project, now called ASU Interplanetary initiative, to investigate fundamental questions about the universe and served as the project's director.

He currently serves as President of The Origins Project Foundation and as host of The Origins Podcast with Lawrence Krauss.Krauss is an advocate for public understanding of science, public policy based on sound empirical data, scientific skepticism, and science education.
