About


Hi! I’m Ben, and I’m a current McWilliams Fellow at Carnegie Mellon University. Prior to moving to the United States, I received my PhD from the University of Edinburgh in Scotland as a Principal’s Career Development Scholar, where I was also part of the university’s Centre for Statistics. With a previous detour through a master’s degree in artificial intelligence as well as related work in the UK’s financial asset management sector before my doctoral studies, I’m also an accredited Graduate Statistician with the American Statistical Association, and part of the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center and the new NSF AI Planning Institute located at Carnegie Mellon University.
