NU Talk 2017 brought together several student researchers from across the scientific disciplines in a series of presentations representing the vast scope of research underway in labs on campus and on co-ops around the world. The event “aimed to paint a picture of the future and divine our role in that future,” said Alexander Farahani, S’18.
As Dean of the College of Science I wish to reach out and offer the support of our community to those students, staff and faculty who are potentially affected by the recent Immigration Executive Order.
Mark Williams, Professor of Physics, sits down with the College of Science Graduate Program staff to talk about his research at Northeastern University.
For many, reading about complex scientific research and innovation can be a daunting task. But the students behind NU Sci—Northeastern’s student-run science magazine—are working to change that.
A number of philosophers, futurists, and technologists have come to believe that we are living in a computer-simulated world, kind of like a real-life version of The Matrix. But physics professor Dmitri Krioukov explains why he’s not part of that camp.
Associate professor of physics Brent Nelson has joined with several colleagues from around the world to argue that dark matter is not a weakly interacting massive particles.
Carolina Mattsson, a Network Science PhD candidate, sits down with the College of Science Graduate Program staff to talk about what it’s like to work and study at Northeastern University.
A new study finds the quantum nature of protons could be behind one of the body’s most important processes.
New research led by Northeastern network scientist Albert-László Barabási shows that, contrary to conventional wisdom, creative breakthroughs in science can come at any age, in the 20s, 40s, even 70s.
Northeastern professor Srinivas Sridhar, who has led pioneering research and education initiatives in the field of nanomedicine, has received the 2016 Biomedical Engineering Society Diversity Award. “This award recognizes the work I’ve been doing for the past 10 years, a path motivated by spreading knowledge and breaking down barriers to access of knowledge,” he said.
