My name is Aaron Pollack. I was born in Bloomington, IL, but lived the majority of my life (age 3 to 18) in Youngstown, Ohio. As a rising sophomore at Duke University, I am pursuing degrees in physics and mathematics. My interest in physics stems from a desire to understand the natural world and an affinity for solving problems. At Duke, I am a member of the Society of Physics Students and the Duke University Mathematics Union.
