Rob was awarded his PhD from the University of New South Wales in 2019, and received the Dean’s Award for Outstanding Theses. Prior to this, he graduated from the University of Surrey in 2015 with a master's in medical engineering, and was the recipient of the IMechE Frederick Barnes Waldon Prize.

He joined the Bilston group as a Postdoctoral Fellow in 2020. His research uses advanced magnetic resonance imaging techniques, image analysis, and computational modelling to help understand the biomechanics of cerebrospinal fluid flow disorders and muscle function.
