Simon hails from rugged northern Québec, Canada. He graduated from McGill University’s Honours Physics undergraduate program in 2015 with a focus in condensed matter. He further completed a M.Sc. there, also in Physics, where he studied strongly correlated electronic behavior in semiconductor devices at ultralow temperatures. For his PhD in Electrical Engineering at Princeton, he is interested in how fundamental nanophotonics and device-level optoelectronics can be applied to systems-level optical signal processing, notably neuromorphic photonics. Outside the lab, Simon enjoys the outdoors, physical activity, reading, and (some would say intense) board games.

Thomas Ferreira de Lima
Passionate about computers, Thomas has started his undergraduate studies in Computer Engineering at ITA, a top school in Brazil. Two years into his undergraduate course, he was admitted to the traditional French École Polytechnique, in Paris-Saclay, where he majored in Applied Physics with emphasis in optics and nano sciences. Physics is beautiful and pleasant for Thomas, but he enjoys engaging in exploring other sources of beauty and joy available: arts, writing, skiing, swimming, music, history & geopolitics, good cooking, travel and languages.

Hsuan-Tung is from Taiwan, and he graduated from National Taiwan University with a B.S. in physics in 2015. During his undergraduate years, he focused on interdisciplinary study about atomic physics and quantum information science. At Princeton University, he would like to explore theories of photonics and develop techniques for implementation of photonic neural network. Beyond academics, he enjoys outdoor sports such as biking, hiking, jogging, playing baseball and basketball. He also has cool experience in run a half marathon and cycling around Taiwan.
