Prior to joining the Department of Psychology as an assistant professor, Benjamin Uel Marsh was an adjunct professor at APU, and had taught or mentored students at Claremont McKenna College, Pomona College, and Claremont Graduate University in Research Design and Statistical Analysis.

As a cognitive psychologist, his research centers on three areas: Bilingualism and memory focusing on language dependent recall of episodic memory, biculturalism and memory focusing on how priming a particular ethnic or national identity influences the encoding and retrieval of episodic memories, and the relationship between language, culture, and memory in individuals who are both bicultural and bilingual. Currently, he is investigating how priming one’s ethnic or national identity influences activation and inhibition of one’s dominant and secondary language.
