Ben graduated from the University of Southampton in 2008 with an Msc in Chemistry. His major projects were supramolecular DNA-porphyrin arrays in the pursuit of molecular electronics and bidentate carbene ligands for transition metal catalysts. He has also worked for Sigma Aldrich doing R&D for SAFC Pharma. Ben joined the CDT in 2009 and will be working on biodegradable polymers.
