Jakob is a second-year undergraduate physics student at the University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics. In high school, he received Bronze Medals at the International Olympiad in Astronomy and Astrophysics and International Olympiad in Physics. He is especially keen to learn as much as possible about nonlinear dynamics, cosmology and topology. His current research is focused on heat transfer in one dimensional lattices. He will spend his summer with Professor Seljak in UC Berkeley where he will work on numerical simulations in cosmology. When he is not thinking about abstract spaces or reading fantasy, he commits to his other passions, alpinism, rock climbing, skiing, football and any other sport.
