"Ben El-Baz was a former student of mine at Stanford and a key contributor in our Cryptocurrency course. He came prepared each session to engage with industry-leading speakers, professors, and fellow students in a thoughtful and insightful way, a key skill needed in the constantly-evolving crypto space. The study of cryptoeconomics is a new and emerging field, and I'm excited to see Ben work on a course in this subject. Ben was a great student and I highly recommend him."
