Ben studied his MPhys at the University of Sheffield and has recently begun a PhD after a year in teaching at a secondary school. As well as being part of the EPMM group here in Sheffield, Ben is also part of the "Centre for Doctoral Training - New and Sustainable Photovoltaics" (CDT-PV) group funded by EPSRC. This CDT-PV group spans across seven other universities directed by Prof. Ken Durose (Liverpool). Ben has a keen interest in organic–inorganic hybrid perovskite photovoltaic devices.

During his spare time Ben enjoys watching and playing both football and ice-hockey as well as playing electric guitar. Ben is also the sports-officer on the PHYSOC (Physics society) committee, where he organises sporting events and sports teams within the department.
