Exploring math and the world.

Benjamin Kurt Miller


PhD student at AMLab and GRAPPA in the AI4Science initative. The goal is to understand, characterize, and generate gravitational waveforms using machine learning. Active member of the Atomic Architects. I contribute to e3nn as a developer and use the E(3) equivariant neural network for regression on small organic molecules. My focus is on applying deep learning to physics problems.

Former member for Artificial Intelligence for the Sciences at the Free University of Berlin. 2019 summer intern at Berkeley Lab. Former member of AG Nichtlineare Laserdynamik and Ultrafast AMO Theory. For some time, I worked as a data scientist at a financial tech company.
