Ben Averbuch is the NCSE Applied Solutions Science Corps Fellow. He works alongside the Science Policy Director to develop the NCSE Applied Solutions Science Corps program, designed to connect young researchers in the natural sciences with local and state policymakers, to build technical capacity for decision-makers, and to support scientists in translating their work into policy implementation.
Ben has previously worked for the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce where he was part of the Economic Development Team. This role included small business development, corporate procurement, and addressing the concerns of Boston’s business community. The concern around environmental issues raised by many of the Chamber’s members helped launch his interest in environmental policy.
Ben is currently completing his bachelor's degree in Economics and Political Science at Northeastern University in Boston.
