Welcome to my page! I’m Nick Rivera. I will be starting a postdoc at Harvard in July 2022. I received my PhD in Physics at MIT (2022). Before that, I did my undergraduate studies in Physics, also at MIT (‘SB 2016).
I am interested in the fundamental physics of light, matter, and their interaction. I use theoretical, computational, and experimental approaches to probe the exciting new ways that the interactions of light and matter can be controlled. Our approaches span several traditional domains, including nanophotonics, quantum and nonlinear optics, condensed matter physics, and laser science. For examples of my involvement in this exciting research field, see the Research and Publications pages.
If you are interested in discussing potential collaborations, or topics of mutual interest more broadly, feel free to email me at nrivera at mit dot edu.
