Gregory Peim, 26, is a graduate student pursuing a doctoral degree in physics, conducting research under the direction of Professor Pran Nath. Originally from New Jersey, he expects to graduate this year.
Peim says he started to conduct his present research in January 2010 and chose his focus before coming to Northeastern University.
“I applied to the graduate program at Northeastern to work with Professor Pran Nath for his reputation as a researcher,” he says. “I was interested in working on supergravity and the ability to detect such models experimentally, e.g. at the Large Hadron Collider and Dark Matter experiments.”
