    He received his Ph.D. in 1982 from Yale Universitys Department of Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry, where he conducted research on X-ray scattering and protein structure. Pickover graduated first in his class from Franklin and Marshall College, after completing the four-year undergraduate program in three years.[1]
    He joined IBM at the Thomas J. Watson Research Center in 1982, as a member of the speech synthesis group and later worked on the design-automation workstations.[2] For much of his career, Pickover has published technical articles in the areas of scientific visualization, computer art, and recreational mathematics.[1] Currently, he is still at the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center.
    He is currently an associate editor for the scientific journal Computers and Graphics and is an editorial board member for Odyssey and Leonardo. He is also the Brain-Strain columnist for Odyssey magazine, and, for many years, he was the Brain-Boggler columnist for Discover magazine.

His Neoreality and Heaven Virus science-fiction series explores the fabric of reality and religion.[1]
    Pickover is author of hundreds of technical papers in diverse fields, ranging from the creative visualizations of fossil seashells [6], genetic sequences[7] [8], cardiac[9] and speech sounds, and virtual caverns[10] and lava lamps[1
