Ultimately, Ben strives for a science which moves people, informs behaviour, and makes a real-world difference.
An unrepentant boardgame geek, amateur cook, keen reader, and father of two, Ben’s just returned to playing the piano after a 20-year break. He briefly managed to overtake his children, musically, but thanks to the competition they’re now showing him how it’s really done.
