Research Assistant, Centre for Science and Policy
Ben joined the Centre for Science and Policy as a Research Assistant in October 2014. Ben works on ‘pathways to impact’ looking at the various avenues and connections that CSaP can offer academics into policy circles. In addition to this, Ben’s work aims to maximise the benefit of impact statements in grant applications.
Ben has worked at the Universities of Exeter and Bristol and brings to CSaP knowledge of grant preparation and the funding landscape. He is particularly interested in optimising the pathways through which research impacts policy making and implementation.
Originally from the South West, Ben read classics and ancient history as an undergraduate at the University of Durham and for a PhD in ancient history at the University of Bristol. Prior to moving to CSaP Ben has lived in France and Greece.
