About Me

Rhys studied B.Sc. Physical Geography and Geology at the University of Glamorgan and graduated in 2009. He later developed a keen interest in renewable energy and went on to study M.Sc. Renewable Energy and Resource Management at the University of Glamorgan in the academic year 2011/2012. He graduated with distinction and then worked for a year in the renewable energy sector, before joining SERC at the University of South Wales to begin work on his Ph.D. project entitled, Enhanced biological hydrogen production using extraction systems in 2013.

Rhys successfully defended his thesis in September 2017 and is currently employed as a research fellow at the University of South Wales. His current projects involve research into carboxylate production and resource recovery from waste. Away from academia, Rhys is a keen rock climber and musician.
