Dr. Bicky Marquez

Ph.D. in Applied Physics

I design photonic hardware for Artificial Intelligence applications.

Love philosophy & oil painting.

My research interests are machine learning, digital computing, brain-inspired computing, AI photonic hardware, chaos theory, complexity and philosophy of mind. 

My work mainly focuses on hardware design, fundamental research, and applications of Artificial Neural Networks for special and general-purpose computing and alternative computing solutions. 

I received a Ph.D. in Optics/Photonics and Machine Learning from Bourgogne - Franche-Comt√© University, France, in 2018, working at FEMTO-ST Institute. I am a Research Scientist at Queen's University, where I work with Prof. Bhavin Shastri on silicon photonic integrated circuits with applications to neuromorphic computing and machine learning. 

I also like to paint and draw portraits, landscapes and stuff from my imagination. I'm an avid reader of philosophy and psychology books. I'm a book collector.
