About

Rodrigo completed his B.Sc in 2009 at the University of Oviedo (Spain) being awarded the best student award of his promotion. In 2011 he completed his M.Sc in industrial engineering at the same university. Short after Rodrigo worked as research assistant in Spain before starting his PhD at the University of South Wales in 2014. Rodrigo successfully defended his viva in 2017 entitled “Development of a novel analyser for short chain carboxylic acids combining capillary electrophoresis separation with an organic polymer based pulsed amperometric detector”.

Rodrigo currently works as research fellow in different projects within the SERC at the University of South Wales. His main projects are the development of a new instrument for the online determination of VFAs and the development of a novel BOD sensor in partnership with the University of Newcastle.
