Neeti Parashar, Ph.D.
Professor of Physics; Director, Center for High Energy Physics
Neeti Parashar founded and is leading the Center for High Energy Physics program at PNW. She is also the principal investigator on National Science Foundation funding and the faculty mentor for the PNW QuarkNet Center on education and outreach.
My research activities are performed at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, (Fermilab), located in Illinois, and the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Switzerland. At Fermilab, I collaborate on the DZERO (“Dee-Zero”) experiment, while at CERN I work on the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment. This research is federally funded by the National Science Foundation.

I love to teach. Students are my first priority. I believe that learning is a two-way process. While the students are learning, so am I. My philosophy is to set the right wavelength for the course content and emphasize basic concepts that students can retain.
