Jonathan AGUILAR

AGH University of Science and Technology, Krakow - Poland


I am currently a Marie Curie fellow with the Marie Curie Initial Training Network on Particle Detectors (MC-PAD). My research involves simulation and prototype preparation and testing of the luminosity calorimeter (LumiCal) for the future International Linear Collider. I am also a MSc student at AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow, Poland, where I study nuclear physics with a focus on HEP. I did my undergraduate studies in physics at Harvard University in Cambridge, USA. While there I worked in the laboratory of Prof. Robert M. Westervelt, developing nanoscale dielectrophoretic tweezers for atomic force microscopy. I became interested in computing for HEP when I wanted to move the LumiCal simulations to the local cluster computing facility. I program primarily in C++ and Python (for Geant4 and ROOT), and am currently learning web-oriented programming languages. I am also familiar with LabView.
