He completed his Ph.D at the University of Liverpool in 2019 and developed the first mobile robotic chemist (Nature, 2020, 583, 237), which attracted worldwide attention. Benjamin brings a truly unique skillset to Gearu, spanning mobile robots, chemistry research, software, and artificial intelligence.
