Stephen Wolfram began his education in college because, throughout his childhood, he had difficulties in learning arithmetic. He enrolled in Eton College for 14 years and did mathematics by Norman Routledge though he left before completing the course which had taken him there. He later joined St. John’s College located in Oxford at the age of 17 years but left because of the lecturer. At the age of 20, he went to the California Institute of Technology and received a Ph.D. in particle physics.

Personal Life: Dating, Girlfriends, Wife, Kids

Stephen is married but has been secretive about his personal life to the public and limelight. He hasn’t given the name of his wife though she is known to be a mathematician. With his wife, they bored four children whose names haven’t been revealed. No one knows where his family, how they live, relate or where they live.

Is Stephen Wolfram Gay?

He is not gay. Though he hasn’t exposed his personal life to the public, he is a married man. He has not revealed the name of his wife. Also, he has four children whom he has kept as secret as well.

Professional Career

Due to having arithmetic learning problems, Stephen began his career with a lot of difficulties. Nevertheless, he had written some physics directories at the age of 12 and also has three books on particle physics at the age of 14.  He was involved in publishing scientific papers for 15 years, where he ventured into quantum field theory and particle physics. He also wrote an article on heavy quark production that got great citations. At 21, he was said to be the youngest recipient of the MacArthur Fellowship.

Wolfram joined the Institute for Advanced Study, where he was involved with research on cellular automata, which was located in Princeton at the school of Natural sciences. He did it through computer simulations, and that led to getting the Wolfram code. He created the complex systems field after working along with Feynman on stimulations of physical processes. He also founded the Santa Fe Institute Workshops together with Phillip Warren Anderson, Murray Gell-Mann, Manfred Eigen, and Frank Wilczek. Again, he started the Centre for Complex Systems Research [CCSR] and the journal Complex Systems at the University of Illinois, located in Urbana.

Also, he was involved in numerous projects like developing the computer algebra system known as Symbolic Manipulation in Caltech. He developed a classification system for cellular automata at the Institute for Advanced Study. His work has over 10,000 article citations and has developed computer algebra system mathematics in a huge way. That system was released on 23rd June 1988. Later, he began working on controversial books like New Kind of Science, which developed through various programs. He is currently in language development meetings. He is also in the history of science, the future of civilization, and the ethics of AI.


Throughout his career, Wolfram has gained and achieved a lot of awards like The MacArthur Fellowship Award as an inaugural fellow of the American Mathematical Society. That’s among the many more awards he attained.
