Associate, Patent Scientist
London, EIP Europe LLP
Ben’s background is in physics and mathematics, having taught both subjects to higher education level at a private college in London, before completing a PhD in Applied Mathematics at Imperial College London on the asymptotic analysis of array-guided waves.
The focus of his research was on developing analytical techniques, based on the tools of asymptotic analysis, for the study of guided waves and resonant effects in periodic and quasi-periodic structures. The application of these techniques yields predictions, whose accuracy has been verified by simulation and experiments, which can assist in the design of photonic crystals, micro-resonators and other devices.
Ben’s work has been published in various academic journals and he has presented at national and international conferences on the subject of metamaterials and photonics. He also has a MSc in Applied Mathematics from Imperial College.
Ben achieved a distinction in his MSc at Imperial and obtained the highest score in his research project. He achieved a first in his BA degree at Oxford University, where he was awarded a scholarship for excellent performance in his first year examinations.
