Ben is in his seventh graduate year in the Clinical Psychology program at Penn State and on clinical internship at Mount Sinai Beth Israel. His research revolves around using latent variable modeling techniques to understand borderline personality disorder (BPD) and related disorders, and taking an attachment-theory-based approach to understanding the development, maintenance, and treatment of BPD.

Ben was born in Pomona, CA, but spent most of his life in the sunny South, near Atlanta, GA. He received his B.A. from Emory University in 2012 with a double major in Psychology and English. Afterwards, he spent two years as a Research Coordinator in the Emory Child and Adolescent Mood Program working with adolescents and young adults with symptoms of BPD. His recreational interests include cooking, writing, playing piano and guitar, and being barefoot.
