Professor Benjamin Klein received his B.S.E.E. and M.S.E.E. degrees from the University of Wisconsin, Madison in 1994 and 1995, respectively, and his Ph.D. from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign in 2000. From 2000-2003, Professor Klein served as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Boulder, Colorado, carrying out theoretical analysis and computer simulations of next-generation semiconductor photonic devices. In August 2003 he joined the faculty of Georgia Tech Savannah as an Assistant Professor.
Professor Klein's research group carries out theoretical modeling and numerical simulation of the internal physics of electronic, optoelectronic, and optical devices in order to deepen fundamental understanding of their operation and improve their design.
