Ben Herbst

Data Scientist

After spending 42 years at universities, both locally and abroad, Ben retired from academic life to join Praelexis in January 2018 where he is now working for an ex-student! During his academic career, he dabbled in different areas of Applied Mathematics such as Numerical Methods, Nonlinear Waves and Solitons, and more recently, Machine Learning and Computer Vision. He is constantly being challenged by his brilliant young colleagues and to get his own back, he challenges them on his mountain bike.
