About Nadim

Welcome! Nadim here, my time on this planet is dedicated to ensuring people can live a free of mind and fulfilling life.

To do so I’m committed at solving some problems that, if not tackled, will give humanity more than something to be worried about in the future.

Most of the time, I’m at the Italian National Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN)  and European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), this way I can work with 1000 more people on the planet at searching the truth about why we do exist and how our universe works, especially in its relation to antimatter.

By pursuing this knowledge eagerness at the LHCb (CERN experiment), we are able to develop new technologies capable of pinpointing cancer or tumors in our bodies, to investigate how our brain works, cells evolve, and many more interesting applications.

Diagnostic applications of fundamental research – High School Conference – Lecco (Italy) – 2018

The rest of my time is divided between my constant studies, a couple of long-term projects to improve the way we live, and giving conference talks to High School students about the importance of their study and decisions. This way I hope to show them new opportunities and to inspire their will to pursue a greater goal in one of a kind lifetime.
