Ben Sorkin, CEO   Ben is a recent graduate of Princeton University's Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department. He has certficates in Sustainable Energy and Robotics & Intelligent Systems. As the 2016 powertrain leader for Princeton Racing Electric, his work on campus was centered on designing the most efficient way to translate power from the batteries into forward motion of the vehicle by optimizing motor, motor controller, and battery integration. This work led him to work at Tesla in the HV Battery Remanufacturing Division. Flux Marine is a result of his combination of love for the water and knowledge of electric propulsion.
