Benjamin is a graduate student at the University of British Columbia. His current studies are in Physical Oceanography, a field which he entered after completing a bachelor’s degree in physics at St. Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia. Benjamin loves ocean science and is thrilled to be a member of the science crew on the R/V Falkor FK009A cruise. When not in the lab or at sea, you are likely to find him exploring the mountains around Vancouver and Whistler, or staying involved with a number of community initiatives in his city.
