MSc Environmental Geochemistry

Osuedivwemu Diata Suedy

Growing up in Nigeria, a country blessed with natural resources, Osuedivwemu Diata Suedy understandably developed a deep appreciation for the environment and a keen interest in the oil and gas sector. It wasn’t long until he put two and two together.

“Back home, oil explorations have led to a lot of environmental pollution and hazards ranging from gas flaring to crude oil spills,” he explains. “Sadly, many people are ignorant and nonchalant about it. It’s really disheartening to see our beloved, God-given environment go to waste with little set in place to care for it.”

Suedy decided to lead by example with an MSc Environmental Geochemistry from the University of Plymouth, where he is currently focusing his attention on how rivers are contaminated by mining activities at Wheal Jane.

His favourite classroom lessons revolve around the subject as well. Alison Turner conducts these lessons – a faculty member Suedy feels very lucky to have. “She’s very friendly and always strives to carry her students along,” he says. “Her explanations on detailed coursework and presentations makes learning easier.”

The overall Plymouth experience has inspired Suedy to remain in the UK. “I’ve learned there are better opportunities here for professionals in environmental geochemistry,” he says.
