Benjamin earned a BA in Anthropology from the University of Pennsylvania and an MA in Classical Art and Archaeology from the University of Michigan, and worked on mapping and excavation projects in the Roman cities of Corinth in Greece, and Carthage and Lamta in Tunisia. He became interested in water infrastructure in Africa in the 1990s when mapping ancient Roman cisterns in Lamta, Tunisia. He looks forward to the installation of the gravity water solution for Bududa, using the Roman water engineering concept of the inverted siphon.
