STC are delighted to announce that Dr Rhydian Beynon-Davies will (re)join our Science team in mid-June to head up our ‘Photobiology’ department. With his extensive academic and industry experience in all things ‘urban farming’, Rhydian will be a great addition to drive forward our work in this area.
Dr David George, STC Director of Science, welcomed the news. “We were extremely pleased to receive Rhydian’s application. Having previously worked with us, for the most part in our LED4Crops and LED High Wire facilities, Rhydian is the ideal candidate to lead our future work in this growing field, including in the new CHAP LED production facility.” Dr George also highlighted that “Rhydian is a man of many talents. He has a strong background in skills training and education, for example, which could be of significant value to a rapidly expanding urban farming sector in the UK. Rhydian was also a well-liked and well respected member of the team during his time here as Project Manager – everybody at STC is excited to welcome him back to the fold in a more senior role.”
