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, photonics, and computational physics.
I'm currently a rotating student in the Solgaard Lab, working on designing photonic synaptic meshes to enable faster and more energy efficient computation for neural networks. 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.
