Benjamin Detenber

Denise WAN

Ben is an award winning researcher and educator who has been working at Nanyang Technological University since 1998. From 2001 to 2008 he was the Head of the Communication Research Division, and from 2008 to 2013 he was the Chair of the Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information. Since then, Ben has happily rejoined the ranks of regular faculty in the School where he teaches both undergraduate and graduate students. He also conducts social scientific research on a range of topics, including public opinion related to climate change, and has published in many of the leading academic journals in his field.

Ben earned his undergraduate and doctoral degrees from Stanford University. At Stanford, he also met his wife, Nikki Draper, who is a documentary filmmaker and teaches in the Wee Kim Wee School. They have two children, Jake Detenber (UWCSEA, ’16) and Lucy Blue Draper (UWCSEA, ’21), both of whom started at UWCSEA in grade 1 and have benefited tremendously from the experiences and education the school has provided. The mission and values of the school resonate with the family, and Ben is grateful to have the opportunity to serve the College and its constituencies.
