I'm Ben. I'm a first-year graduate student in applied physics at Stanford University. I graduated from the California Institute of Technology with a B.S. in physics and computer science in 2017. My general research interests include quantum information, computational physics, quantum optics, and nanophotonics.
I'm currently a rotating student in the Nanoscale and Quantum Photonics Lab, working on developing computational tools to efficiently simulate scattering in complex quantum mechanical systems. Until recently, I worked at AT&T Foundry in Palo Alto on the INQNET (INtelligent Quantum NEtworks and Technologies) project, writing a quantum network simulation framework and designing transmission protocols to improve the peak bandwidth of fiber optic networks using quantum mechanical effects.
