Ben is a diligent and hardworking research who after completing a Bachelor of Psychological Sciences (majoring in Human Neuroscience) and Honours degree in Health and Medical Sciences (Neuroscience), continues to nurture his passion for neuroscience through his studies. Currently completing his PhD in Medicine (Neuroscience), Ben is hoping to characterise the cognitive and mood changes TBI survivors experience, whilst comparing these changes to neuroimaging markers to allow for earlier intervention and possible alleviation of these declines.

If I'm not in the lab, you'll likely find me listening to music, playing board games or sitting down with a good book and a cuppa.
