Benjamin completed his MS research determining the accuracy and reproducibility of Canon’s latest spectral dual energy CT scanner (Aquilion One PRISM Edition) using tissue mimicking materials provided by Gammex. For his PhD, he is utilizing his mechanical engineering background to design and 3D print tissue mimicking materials and CT phantoms meant for quality control testing dual energy acquisitions.

On the weekends, Benjamin enjoys spending time with his wife, Torri, hiking Hawthorne trail, cooking quality meals, and socializing among friends and family at local breweries.
