Ben Hanken

Ben earned a B.S. in Chemical Engineering at Oregon State University, and subsequently a Ph.D. at UC Davis. He has researched a range of materials, from nuclear fuels to amorphous oxide semiconductors. Aside from his background in physical sciences, however, Ben is also an enthusiastic hobbyist game developer. It is this love of programming user experiences combined with a desire to learn and teach that has brought him to Ideum as a Software Developer in the Creative Services department. Ben also enjoys brewing beer, judging beer (BJCP “Certified” ranked), roasting coffee, hiking, camping, and just generally learning new skills (e.g., guitar).
