Dr Ben Matellini is a senior industrial lecturer within the School of Engineering, Technology and Maritime Operations. Ben leads several modules within engineering programmes, which focus on risk and safety management, and industrial management. The modules are delivered both in the UK as well as overseas through collaborative partnership programmes. Ben also manages a collaborative partnership with Risktec Solutions, with whom an MSc in Risk and Safety Management is delivered.
Ben’s area of expertise and research interest is in risk and safety management. Ben is interested in the development and application of risk management techniques within industry. He has previously worked on projects within the fire and rescue services, process industries, and Arctic shipping. Ben is director of study for several PhD projects linked to these areas.
Prior to joining the University Ben was a risk and safety consultant at ABS Consulting (UK), working on oil and gas, and marine projects across the world. Ben also spent eight years in Peru working for the Government’s Maritime Institution, where he managed oceanographic projects and conducted research on the El Nino Southern Oscillation phenomenon.
