Andy Strominger is a prominent researcher in superstring-related areas of physics. This interview marks one of the few times that he's expressed his views in a non-technical venue.
Here's a link to over 100 papers that Strominger has authored or co-authored (from latest to earliest):

The first paragraph contains an error in this sentence:
Albert Einstein, always a seeker of unity in diversity, spent several decades of his life in an successful chase after such a single concept that can explain all physical phenomena the Holy Grail of physics.
The word 'successful' should be replaced by 'unsuccessful'!

The trick is to find a framework in which general relativity and quantum mechanics - which both work marvelously - can be unified in the same theoretical approach.
God makes this very interesting. But while I'm not sure we'll ever completely satisfy His conditions, it's always fun to speculate about.
Thanks for the flag and Merry Christmas.
