Jamal S. Shrair has a B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from Canada’s Queen’s University and a M.Sc. in experimental and particle physics from the Eötvös Loránd University of Science in Budapest, Hungary. His M.Sc. thesis project was an investigation of cosmic muons using a Cherenkov detector. In his post graduate studies he joined the faculty of electrical engineering and informatics at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, where he studied surface physics and electron devices. The title of his thesis project is „The application of Nanoporous Silicon Layers for Efficient Gas Sensors”. He is expected to defend his Ph.D. thesis in the next a few months. Jamal is a very talented an
d outstanding researcher, who strongly believes that the fundamental laws of physics are only approximately correct, while most of the laws of theoretical physics are myths and mathematical fiction. He attributes this to the lack of understanding of the building blocks of matter and the confusion of mass with matter itself.
