I’m Ben Mayersohn – proud owner of I’m a data scientist at Appfigures and a Ph.D student at NYU’s Center for Atmosphere Ocean Science (CAOS).

My doctoral advisor is Shafer Smith.

My research involves a combination of upper ocean biology and small scale ocean dynamics, and in particular the interplay between the two in organizing planktonic communities in the world’s seas and oceans.

Research Interests

  • Mechanisms that lead to biodiversity in planktonic ecosystems
  • Distinguishing between biological and physical contributions to ecosystem variability
