Alec Tewsley-Booth is a physicist specializing in magnetometry and precision tests of fundamental physics. He is currently a postdoc on the Muon g-2 experiment at Fermilab and has been a part of the experiment for eight years.
Alec believes a physicist has many jobs. The obvious one, doing research and discovering new things about the universe, is absolutely a joy. However, there are other jobs that a physicist does that are just as important and just as rewarding. He believes that every physicist is also an educator, whether they are teaching intro classes to undergraduates or explaining their new results and theories through peer-reviewed journals. What’s the point of discovery if you don’t put in the effort to effectively share what you have learned? To that end, Alec works towards understanding both science and education.
