Project & research interests: “Ecosystems biology and innovative eco-engineering to optimise the assembly and activity of anaerobic, waste-conversion biofilms.”
My project is focused on biofilm development, and microbial interactions, in novel waste treatment systems, including the systems being developed for the Transforming Waste project.
Background: I graduated with a First Class Honours Degree in Environmental Science from NUI Galway in 2012. I received a University Scholar Award for the academic year 2010-11.
Other interests: I enjoy snooker, football and rugby.
Robert’s research is supported by a scholarship from the Irish Research Council.
