Boris Braverman

I am a fourth-year undergraduate student at the Faculty of Arts and Science of the University of Toronto, specializing in physics.

My email address is, replacing "######" with "b.braverman".

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).
