Ben is the Facility Manager of the Centre for Rapid Online Analysis of Reactions (ROAR). This new, state-of-the-art facility will provide the academic and industrial chemistry community with the critical hardware, software and expertise needed for data-rich experimentation in chemical synthesis.
He was previously a Research Associate (2015-2017) working with Dr. King Kuok (Mimi) Hii and Prof. Klaus Hellgardt on the application of electrochemically generated oxidants in organic synthesis. Benjamin received an MSc from the University of Waikato (New Zealand) before moving to the University of Cambridge (UK) as a Commonwealth Scholar in 2009. After completing his PhD under the supervision of Prof. Steven Ley in 2013, he moved to University College Cork (Ireland) to work with Prof. Anita Maguire as a Postdoctoral Research Associate of the Synthesis and Solid State Pharmaceutical Centre (SSPC).
Ben has previously served (2016-2017) as one of the Department of Chemistry representatives on the Postdoc Development Centre's Reps Network.
