One of the newest additions to our team, Senior Data Scientist Benjamin Kelly, is the Birchbox staffer to get friendly with. Not only does this cheeky Brit keep his desk mates in stitches with his dry wit, he’s also responsible for making sure our sample selections are the best fit for your monthly Birchboxes. Having earned his PhD at Cornell University, Ben now keeps our team in constant awe with his intricate live-graphs. When he isn’t figuring out sample perfection, the jazz aficionado is rocking out on his guitar. Welcome, Ben—your fresh new ideas are music to our ears!
