Role: Early Career Researcher
Ben is an Instrument Engineer at the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, UK. He constructs, installs and maintains data-logging and telemetry systems using a wide variety of sensors for hydrological and micrometeorological measurements. He is particularly interested in measuring gas fluxes by eddy covariance. His work on the HyCRISTAL project concerns the deployment of a hydro-meteorological network in Kampala, Uganda, and a transect of climate stations in Kenya. He obtained his Ph.D. at Bangor University, assessing the distribution and persistence of viral contamination in shellfisheries.
