Nicholas DePorzio is a junior at Northeastern University and has been a member of Northeastern’s Society of Physics Students since his freshman year. His repeated terms on the club's governing board have developed his interest in and understanding of the organization at the local and international levels. He past served as an International Trustee on the governing board of the Key Club international organization. This experience well acquainted him with the operations of international student groups. He has enjoyed diverse research experiences spanning from graphene research to neutrinoless double-beta decay. These experiences have brought him to several conferences and labs including those at Northeastern University, M.I.T., and to the Gran Sasso National Laboratory of Italy. The six months he spent on the CUORE experiment at Gran Sasso have come to define his current interests in the study of rare particle decays. He has been invited to present this work at a meeting of the APS. He has also devoted time towards applying his research abilities to investigations of benefit to his community. Beyond academic pursuits, Nicholas greatly enjoys hiking, gardening and other outdoor activities as well as collecting antique scientific instruments.
