Benjamin is an engineer by training and a people person at heart. For his undergraduate degree he studied aerospace engineering at Georgia Tech, graduating at the top of his class. He also received minors in economics and Spanish as well as a certificate in entrepreneurship. After gaining four semesters of work experience in aerospace with Gulfstream Aerospace in Savannah, Georgia and ATA Engineering in San Diego, he decided to change focus and seek a field of study that would have a more direct engagement with people. Ben also knew he wanted to focus on projects that would have a significant impact on both individuals and society, a passion instilled in him from his year serving in South Africa. Ben has now joined the PhD program in Industrial Engineering at Georgia Tech and actively engages these passions in the Center for Health and Humanitarian Systems as well as in the Health Analytics group. In his future, he plans to continue building his engineering and business analytics skills to apply them to humanitarian applications around the globe.
