Ben is a Royal Society EP Abraham Professor at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics and the Herchel Smith Chair in Physics at the Cavendish Laboratory. He is also a PI at the Cambridge Stem Cell Institute and a Fellow of St. John’s College.
Ben’s research combines mathematical and statistical modelling with cell fate mapping and gene expression profiling to address mechanisms of cell fate. His studies have helped uncover conserved patterns of stem cell self-renewal and understand how these programmes become dysregulated during the transition to cancerous states.
