Biography

Benjamin is a research technician in the Shalek lab developing novel single cell profiling strategies to apply to outstanding problems in basic and applied immunology. In collaboration with the Kean Lab, he is currently exploring pediatric inflammatory bowel disease, searching for key disease signatures.

Before working at MIT, Benjamin studied data science and biology at Harvard University, and worked on motif discovery algorithms for transcription factor binding sites. In his free time Benjamin enjoys snowshoeing, photography, and cooking spicy food.
