Brendan Patrick Marsh
Ph.D. Student in Applied Physics, admitted Autumn 2018
BioBrendan is a theoretical physicist investigating the physics of many-body quantum systems and ultracold atoms in pursuit of a new generation of neuromorphic quantum computers. As part of the Lev Laboratory at Stanford University, he works directly alongside experimental physicists with state-of-the-art quantum optical systems to devise new theories of how these emerging quantum technologies can be harnessed to solve practical problems.
Besides quantum computing platforms, Brendan works on problems in the philosophy of quantum theory (with Jeremy Butterfield at the University of Cambridge), single molecule biophysics (with Gavin King at the University of Missouri), as well as machine learning and machine vision (with Brianna Marsh at the University of California, San Diego). Along with Gavin King, he invented the Hessian blob algorithm, a general-purpose machine vision algorithm which is finding applications in fields ranging from scanning probe microscopy to medical imaging.
