Rid has completed his PhD in 2021 under the supervision of Professor Nigel Brandon. His thesis title is Study of Bi-layer Electrodes for Lithium-ion Batteries through Simulation and Experiment. He is currently working on mechanical and chemical degradation modelling of graded electrode as a research associate.

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.
