Welsh Crucible 2012
Vincent obtained his BEng degree in Electronic and Electrical Engineering at Swansea University and subsequently completed his PhD at the same institution investigating nanoscale electronic materials using scanning probe microscopy techniques. Presently, he is a lecturer at Swansea University and heads the Nanoelectronics Research Group within the Multidisciplinary Nanotechnology Centre in the College of Engineering. He has great interest in nanoscience and nanotechnology research. His current research involves the characterisation and fabrication of nanoscale electronic materials and devices that have major impacts in healthcare and information technologies, such as in the development of biosensors and data storage respectively. An example of his recently funded project is on the development of nano-biosensors technology that provides non-invasive, ambulatory and continuous monitoring of chronic diseases. The project allows him to collaborate with both academic colleagues and industry partners working in diverse fields, ranging from life science to wireless telecommunication.
Vincent has been promoted to Professor in the College of Engineering at Swansea University.
