Ben Ralston is currently Head of Computer Science at the UK’s Atomic Weapons Establishment in Aldermaston, where he has been since
March 2003.
He left University with a Computational Chemistry D Phil then wrote FORTRAN and lead projects across Europe for a scientific consultancy, Logica, before joining Cray in 1979 as one of their first two application tuners in Europe. He helped Cray open up their first non-government markets until joining IBM as they re-entered the supercomputer market where he was eventually responsible for UK Academia. He retired after 18 years with IBM to take up his current role.

He still runs regularly, at least socially as a hash house harrier, and supports his two daughters with their goal to scull for the British rowing team.
