Mr Keiron P Roberts is Postgraduate research student within Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Southampton.

I am currently investigating the suitability of marine algae as a feedstock for mesophillic anaerobic digestion. I am trying to overcome the inhibition effects of high salinities and sulphur on the methanotrophic consortium.

Research interests

My research interests are in anaerobic digestion, phycology, biofuel production and large scale algal culturing.

PhD Supervisors:  Prof. Charles Banks and Dr. Sonia Heaven

Funding agencies: EPSRC funded studentship

Research group

I demonstrate on several university modules such as the ENVS first year field course, SOES biogeochemistry modules and CENV wastewater engineering modules. I am actively engaged in public outreach, working on science and engineering open days and the science road show.
