Maia Magrakvelidze, PhD

Assistant Professor of Physics

Maia Magrakvelidze, PhD, is Assistant Professor of Physics. Prior to joining Cabrini, Magrakvelidze served as a tenure-track assistant professor at the University of Mary Washington, where she received the seventh annual Chi Beta Phi Outstanding Faculty Award.

Magrakvelidze completed post-doctoral research at the Northwest Missouri University, where she worked on attosecond time delays in photoionization of atoms, fullerenes, and atoms confined in fullerenes.

She earned her second master’s degree and doctorate in Physics at Kansas State University, where she worked on dissociation dynamics of diatomic molecules in intense laser fields. Magrakvelidze earned her bachelor’s and first master’s degree in condensed matter at Tbilisi State University, Georgia.

Magrakvelidze’s goals as a teacher are to focus on helping students increase their confidence, critical-thinking skills, and understanding of fundamental concepts of physics. She wants all of her students to not only understand the concepts but also to have a real feeling for the concepts so that they gain the ability to use their knowledge in other classes and throughout their everyday lives.

Currently, Magrakvelidze teaches General and University Physics classes, serves as Science Club Advisor, STEM team member.
