Dr Ben Surridge
Ben is the lead Admissions Tutor, along with Oliver Wild, for all Environmental and Earth Science degrees at Lancaster. If you visit Lancaster at an Open Day or Applicant Visit Day, you will likely meet Ben! Should you have any questions about any of our degree schemes, feel free to ask him!
Ben’s research focuses on the biogeochemistry of water and soil ecosystems, including how human activity has altered the input of pollutants to these ecosystems. This research feeds directly into the Undergraduate modules that Ben teaches. He teaches on two third year modules, one focussed on sustainable water resource management and the other on river restoration as part of the Issues in Conservation Biology module.
