Ben is now undertaking doctoral studies at the University of Adelaide, where he examines clean energy supply with a focus on nuclear technologies. and he has presented his research findings around Australia and the world. Founding Bright New World takes Ben back to his NGO beginnings to give environmentalism a reboot for the 21st century.
