Prof. Stephen Benton

Biography:

Professor Stephen Benton graduated in psychology from Brunel University and joined the Acoustics Research Group at Chelsea College, University of London, on a SERC scholarship to conduct PhD research into Low Frequency Noise effects with Prof. Geoff Leventhall. He then went to University College London  as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow within the Dept. of Psychology studying visual psychophysics with Prof. Michael Morgan. He has spent several years researching and lecturing in cognitive psychology and various aspects of human factors, as applied to the improvement of individuals’ quality of life and performance. In recent years he has combined these elements to develop an interest in the application of psychological analyses to behavioural issues within organisations, both domestic and international.  This work provided the platform for his creation, in 1997, of the first Business Psychology Postgraduate programme.  As a visiting Professor to the Institute of Applied Psychology, University of Indonesia (1994-5) he conducted, with Indonesian colleagues, research into Indonesian negotiation and decision-making practices, which led to a three year British Council funded study and development programme between the universities. His work in Indonesia has expanded to currently include organisational and cross cultural research, development of a Business Psychology programme and a role as visiting International Faculty. He currently holds research contracts funded by the MRCESRCKTP and the EU.  Stephen was awarded the title of Professor of Business Psychology, in 2009, the first in the UK.  He is also the founding director of the Business Psychology Centre, (2001-), which has a successful track record of Knowledge Transfer contracts and consultancy.
