Alex EftimiadesResearcher of the Week:
Alex Eftimiades

Meet Alex...
He is a Physics and Mathematics major. He is also a URA Scholar. His future plans includes obtaining his PhD in physics and focusing on research in computational physics.

His research will explore the foundations of Einstein’s theory of general relativity. Alex will investigate whether electrons with different spins fall at different rates in the presence of a gravitational field. Recent publications suggest that gravity causes electrons with different spins to fall at different rates. He plans to develop a model of electrons falling in the presence of a gravitational field. This is relatively well-established. Then, I will numerically simulate electrons with different spins falling in a gravitational field.

"Of all the research universities we've visited, it is the place that has most capably connected research with undergraduate education." - Claudia Dreifus and Professor Andrew Hacker of Queens College in New York, described UMBC in their book on American colleges and universities that are "Worth the Price of Admission."
