About Me

Alex George



I am an undergraduate at the University of Pittsburgh, majoring in Physics and Mathematics with a minor in Chemistry.  At Pitt, I am a member of the High-Energy Physics research group, led by Dr. Dytman, Dr. Paolone, and Dr. Naples.  Our group is building and testing equipment for the MINERvA project at Fermilab, and (eventually) adapting those electronics for the T2K project in Japan.  My contribution is with the building and testing of the light injection system, which will be used to calibrate the light detection mechanisms (the photo multiplying tubes).   

When not in class or in the lab, I am vice-president of Pitt’s Math Club and I enjoy doing very dorky things such as preparing for the physics GRE and reading books by Richard Feynman.
