Benjamin Rodems, MSLab Supervisor
Ben spent six years as a high school science teacher, before deciding that it was time for a career change to something more dexterous and scientific. He was missing the critical thinking, problem solving, and hands-on techniques that come along with trying to optimize experiments and protocols. He was the first person to join the lab in early 2020 and has had the pleasure of helping build it from the ground up. What started with two lab members has now grown to a lab of six!
Outside of the lab he enjoys many activities that involve his friends like kickball, softball, video games, and even a skee-ball league. He also loves running and cycling and one day hopes to get into triathlons.
