Nima Arkani-Hamed (Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton)
About the speaker:
Nima Arkani-Hamed is one of the top world-leaders in high energy theoretical physics. His research spans a wide range of subjects, from
particle phenomenology to the geometry of scattering amplitudes. After
finishing his PhD at Berkeley in 1997 and a 2-year postdoc at SLAC,
Arkani-Hamed became faculty at Berkeley before joining Harvard as a
professor. In 2008 Arkani-Hamed became a permanent member of the
Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. His awards are numerous and
include the Sloan Fellowship, Packard Fellowship, American Academy of
Arts and Sciences member, the 2003 Gribov Medal from the European
Physical Society, the 2008 Raymond and Beverly Sackler Prize in Physics, and the 2012 Fundamental Physics Prize.
In this MCTP colloquium, Arkani-Hamed will discuss recent ideas to
solve the Naturalness Problem in particle physics.
