Rid is pursuing his PhD on designing graded electrode materials for lithium-ion battery application under the supervision of Professor Nigel Brandon. His research work includes both experimentation and numerical modelling. 

Rid obtained his BS in Physics from the University of California Davis and MS in Alternative Energy/Chemical Engineering from the University of Rochester. Prior to starting at Imperial, Rid has worked at Accenture and Google as Software Engineer and Technical Solution Engineer. Rid was a summer 2020 battery modelling intern at the Apple's Battery Product Development (BPD) team.
