Nima Arkani-Hamed spends much of his time researching Particle physics, Supersymmetry, Quantum mechanics, Theoretical physics and Large extra dimension. His study involves Supersymmetry breaking, Higgs boson, Little Higgs, Standard Model and Extra dimensions, a branch of Particle physics. His research ties Physics beyond the Standard Model and Supersymmetry together.

His Theoretical physics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Quantum gravity, DGP model and Gauge theory. His Large extra dimension study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Hierarchy problem, Gravitation, Graviton and Universal extra dimension. His study looks at the relationship between Hierarchy problem and topics such as Cosmological constant problem, which overlap with Vacuum energy.

- New dimensions at a millimeter to a Fermi and superstrings at a TeV (3267 citations)
- Phenomenology, astrophysics and cosmology of theories with submillimeter dimensions and TeV scale quantum gravity (1834 citations)

Particle physics, Supersymmetry, Theoretical physics, Supersymmetry breaking and Higgs boson are his primary areas of study. His study explores the link between Supersymmetry and topics such as Standard Model that cross with problems in Supergravity. His Theoretical physics research incorporates themes from Unitarity, Quantum mechanics, Gauge theory and Graviton.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Yukawa potential, Neutrino, Brane and Coupling constant. The concepts of his Hierarchy problem study are interwoven with issues in Large extra dimension, Extra dimensions and Cosmological constant problem. Nima Arkani-Hamed studied Large extra dimension and Gravitation that intersect with Effective field theory.

His primary areas of investigation include Scattering amplitude, Theoretical physics, Particle physics, Amplituhedron and Unitarity. His studies deal with areas such as Graviton, Gravitational singularity, Feynman diagram and Photon as well as Scattering amplitude. His work on Inflation as part of general Theoretical physics study is frequently linked to Context, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science.

His work on Particle physics is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Nuclear physics. In his work, Vacuum state, Cosmological constant and Hierarchy problem is strongly intertwined with Standard Model, which is a subfield of Higgs boson. In his research, Supersymmetry is intimately related to Standard Model, which falls under the overarching field of Hierarchy problem.
