Ben is a postdoctoral research fellow at UC Davis and a visiting postdoctoral research associate at the Princeton Neuroscience Institute. His research leverages common musical phenomena to investigate how the human brain acquires, structures, and preserves knowledge as we carry out our day-to-day tasks. Ben’s work examines questions about how music and episodic knowledge become associated in long-term memory, and how the brain functionally represents and consolidates music and associated memories across time. He has a B.A. in cognitive science from Case Western Reserve University and a Ph.D. in psychology from UC Davis.
