Assistant Professor, Purdue University

Earning his Ph.D. in physics in USC College in 2005, Nohadani will bring his cutting-edge research to his new post as assistant professor at Purdue University.

Nohadani said he built a strong research foundation at USC College. After earning his bachelor’s and master’s in physics with a minor in philosophy at the University of Bonn in Germany, he chose the College because of his interest in theoretical research and the opportunity to work with Stephan Haas, a highly respected physicist in the field.

“For the particular kind of research I wanted to do, USC was the best choice,” he said. “And because of the family atmosphere, I quickly felt at home. It became my scientific home.”

While at USC, Nohadani was appointed by the Office of the Provost, Graduate Student in Residence (GSIR). As GSIR, he served as a resource for all graduate and professional students, and a liaison with USC administration and faculty.

He credits USC College for helping him to reach his current success.

“Nowhere else in the world could I as a graduate student have been able to carry on the kind of research I did there,” he said. “The opportunity was unique.”
