A new doctoral student, Benjamin Prud’homme, will join the team starting this Fall semester! Benjamin will enter the Ph.D. program in Computer Science at the CUNY Graduate Center as a CUNY Graduate Center Fellow (GCF).
Benjamin received his bachelor’s degree from Vassar College in 2022, where he was a double major in computer science and mathematics and did a correlate (minor) in music performance (classical guitar and voice). He has research experience in building and optimizing algorithms for working with simple temporal networks. His current interests lie at the intersection of software engineering, machine learning, and data science.
Benjamin is very excited to be pursuing his PhD in New York, where he has lived for the past 18 years! Benjamin has studied classical guitar since he was six years old, and plays guitar in various ensembles as well as a guitar orchestra. He also enjoys choral singing and has been a soloist with the Hudson Valley BachFest, the Vassar Chamber Singers, and the New Amsterdam Singers. In his free time, Benjamin enjoys working on pop/rock covers and watching/cheering on the New York Giants and Yankees, as well as the US Women’s National Soccer Team. Welcome to the team, Benjamin!
