biography
Benjamin Lovitz

I grew up in Portland, Oregon before moving to Lewiston, Maine to attend Bates College, where I double-majored in Mathematics and Physics (Honours), and won the Percy D. Wilkins award for the highest math GPA. During this time, I participated in a summer Research Experience for Undergraduates at SUNY Potsdam under the supervision of Christino Tamon.  I then moved to Waterloo, Ontario, where I completed an MSc in Physics (Quantum Information) under Norbert Lütkenhaus, and  PhD in Applied Mathematics (Quantum Information) under the joint supervision of William Slofstra and John Watrous. I am now an NSF postdoc at Northeastern University under the mentorship of Harm Derksen.

 

When I am not doing math, you can often find me playing basketball, dancing contact improvisation, playing piano, or enjoying the outdoors.
