Profile & selected publications

Dr. Kryemadhi grew up in Albania and completed his bachelor's degree in Physics at the University of Tirana there. After two years at the University of Siegen in Germany, he came to the United States to study particle physics at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. There his research focused on search for CPT violation with D-mesons and measuring the lifetime of the Lb particle. Abaz continued his work on Lb at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory as a post-doctoral researcher with University of Virginia. In 2006, he came to Messiah college where he teaches Physics. Abaz and his wife Ilse have two daughters Anisa and Rovena and enjoy camping, hiking and traveling.
