Department of Physics and Astronomy Welcomes New Faculty  

Nicola Giacinto Piacquadio, Assistant Professor, is an experimental particle physicist. He completed his Ph.D. at the University of Freiburg (Germany), and from there held a prestigious CERN Fellowship, a Marie Curie Award, and the W. Panofsky Fellowship at SLAC. His research is on physics of the Standard Model and beyond using the massive ATLAS detector at CERN, which recently announced the discovery of the Higgs Boson.

Sergey Syritsyn, Assistant Professor, is a theoretical nuclear physicist. He completed his Ph.D. at MIT under the supervision of John Negele in the Center for Theoretical Physics. He then held a Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Nuclear Science Division, at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, a RIKEN Foreign Postdoctoral Researcher Fellowship at the Brookhaven National Laboratory, and the Nathan Isgur Fellowship at Theory Center, Thomas Jefferson National Laboratory.

Navid Vafaei-Najafabadi, Assistant Professor, studies the physics of high energy charged particle accelerators. He received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering (from the University of California, Los Angeles on beam driven plasma wakefield accelerators,” which seeks to use novel techniques involving high-power lasers to drive charged particles to very high energies.
