They are researchers who we think do great research and know their way around subject-specific computing tools and techniques. They help the Research Computing Team by being a point of call for domain specific queries and who are happy to help others too. To reward their collaborations with us we offer them access to the cool, new things we often get to work with and provide them with access to our smaller peer training sessions we run.

Ben HansonBen is a computational biophysicist working in the School of Physics and Astronomy. He's currently researching the multiscale formation and mechanical properties of globular protein hydrogels, but is interested overall in how general physical models translate across the biological mesoscale. Part of his interest in the role of research software champion is in communicating to the scientific research populace the overlap and differences between mathematics, computation and experimental science.
