Boris Braverman

I am an incoming first-year PhD student at the Department of Physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

My email address is, replacing "######" with "bbraverm".

My research has focused on quantum optics (NSERC USRA 2008, with Alex Lvovsky, term study, with Aephraim Steinberg, and NSERC USRA 2011, with Barry Sanders), condensed matter (NSERC USRA 2009, with Stephen Julian), medical physics (summer 2010, with Mauro Tambasco), and cold atom physics (undergraduate thesis project, with Joseph Thywissen).
