Ben graduated from Brown University in 2017 with an ScB in Cognitive Neuroscience. While there, he completed an honors thesis with Dima Amso on executive function and pretend play in children ages 3 to 7. He is now a research coordinator in the Jones Lab, where he is working on a longitudingal fMRI study of circumscribed interests in ASD. Ben loves commuting to work via Citi Bike (he is a Level One Bike Angel) and seeing (ostensibly) free movies with Movie Pass before it (inevitably) goes out of business.
