Benjamin received his B.A. in anthropology with a focus in archaeology from Stony Brook University in 2016. He is broadly interested in identifying variability in technology over time, and comparing technological change with ecological change. He hopes to use attribute analysis in order to examine the lithic artefacts at Tràng An in order to shed some light on behavioral variability in the Southeast Asian Paleolithic. Benjamin is very interested in science communication, and has spent time at the National Museum of Natural History at the Smithsonian Institution as a museum educator.
