Prof. Steven Nahn received his PhD from MIT, then worked as a Research Scientist at Yale, as a member of the CDF collaboration at Fermilab. He later joined the MIT Physics Dept faculty, where his research has been focused on the Compact Muon Solenoid experiment at CERN. This work is expected to will cross a new threshold in collision energy, opening a new window on particle physics.
