Ben is a postdoctoral researcher at JPL who is investigating the thermophysical properties of the lunar surface with the Diviner Lunar Radiometer instrument onboard the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO). He received a Ph.D. in Physics in 2020 from the University of Texas at San Antonio, where he performed research with the LRO Lyman Alpha Mapping Project (LAMP) team under the direction of Dr. Kurt Retherford. His dissertation focused on studying the effects space weathering and other surface processes/properties on the lunar regolith in the far-UV as observed by LRO LAMP.
