About me

Ben has 13 years of experience in environmental sampling, analysis and apportionment of air pollution. His PhD focused on the development of a method for the source apportionment and mapping of fugitive PM from industrial facilities using geochemical fingerprinting and environmental forensic approaches. He worked as an environmental consultant for 5 years, developing and undertaking novel source apportionment investigations for industry and regulatory authorities. Ben has worked on research projects for national and international research councils, private organisations (as PI, Co-I and PDRA) and currently works on several research projects including the Horizon 2020 funded Citizen-led air pollution reduction in cities (ClairCity), NERC funded bioaerosol characterisation and dispersion modelling (ENDOTOXII and BIOMOLD), and Wellcome Trust funded impacts of the built environment on health and economy (UPSTREAM) and engagement with local communities on the same topic (I-NUDGE).
