Aaron Stanek is an undergraduate physics major in the College of Creative Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He has varied interests, including, but certainly not limited to: high energy particle physics, computational physics, machine intelligence, software development, ecology, social justice, and international politics.

While completing his undergraduate degree, Aaron is working as a researcher for Dr. David Stuart. Dr. Stuart's lab is presently searching for evidence of supersymmetry, physics beyond the standard model. Aaron's work in this lab involves primarily software development, CAD / 3D printing, analog electronics development, and experiment design.

Aaron has ample experience working on Debian-based and Windows Operating Systems. He is very familiar with Python and C++, and has a working-level knowledge of PHP, Wolfram Language, HTML, Javascript, CSS and Spanish.
