Will has a background in chemistry and electronic materials, receiving his B.Sc (Hons) degree in Chemistry in 2006 from the University of Wales, Bangor. He went on to obtain a PhD in Electronic Engineering from Bangor University in 2012, studying spatially resolved performance characteristics of thin-film CdTe photovoltaic solar cells. Following this, Will took up a postdoctoral position at the Centre for Solar Energy Research at Glyndwr University working as Research Assistant on a Welsh Government Academic Expertise for Business (A4B) Collaborative Industrial Research Project (CIRP).
Outside work, Will spends most of his time entertaining his small son and house renovation. If/when he finds the time, he also plays the piano, reads (in the middle of a fascinating book on near eastern late antiquity), cycle, and when COVID isn’t getting in the way, he also enjoys travelling!
