Hailing from County Meath, Ben developed his interests in the natural world at a young age taking inspiration from the countryside in the foothills of the Hill of Tara. As a lover of biology, he graduated in 2013 with a B.Sc in 'Biological and Biomedical Science' from Maynooth University, but within that course he revisited interests from his youth in the form of various modules pertaining to evolutionary biology, animal behaviour and ecological studies that would only serve to entice a career path in ecosystem science.
