Benjamin is currently a first-year graduate student working toward a Master’s of Science degree in Biostatistics. Before coming to UNC, Benjamin worked for two years in a non-profit public health organization doing evaluation work. His work ranged from helping to evaluate Math and Science Partnership programs across three states to helping his clients increase awareness of health issues via public service announcements. Benjamin is excited to join the X-Lab, as it will provide him the opportunity to combine two of his interests, mental health research, and programming, together. During his free time, Benjamin enjoys developing his programming, cooking, and badminton skills.
