Ben is a member of Ken Johnson’s Chemical Sensor team. He holds a Master’s degree in Oceanography from Scripps Institution of Oceanography where he focused on sensor integration on mobile platforms, and received his Bachelor’s in Physics from the University of California, Santa Barbara.

In addition to testing the physical limitations of ocean instruments, Ben likes to test his abilities free diving and students’ knowledge as an educator, and honed in those skills while working at the Catalina Island Marine Institute (CIMI).

If you ever see Ben, you can create a strong bond by telling him your favorite trivial knowledge, or just mention how disappointing the Sacramento Kings are.
