Andrzej Zuranski joins us this February from Princeton University, where he earned a Ph.D. in Physics. A research scientist who worked in a highly quantitative environment, Andrzej has specialized in programming, data mining and analysis, data acquisition systems and distributed computing. For four years, Andrzej was a research associate at CERN in Geneva, where he belonged to a team that helped discover the Higgs boson. CERN honored Andrzej for his contributions to the operation of luminosity measurements. Andrzej previously earned M.Sc. and B.Sc. degrees in Physics at Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland, where he designed an algorithm for a real-time data preprocessing application to classify signatures of electromagnetic particles. He is a trained classical pianist and enjoys skiing and squash. Andrzej was born and raised in Rzeszow in eastern Poland, and he periodically visits his family there.
