Short biography

Vince works in the Institute of Innovation, Science and Sustainability. He started his research working on marine lipids and became interested in the analytical chemistry of more complex organic systems such as coal and its products and waste streams. He worked for ten years each in both the public service and private industry as a research chemist/ specialist consultant before returning to various university roles. His research focus is very applied in assisting local industries in improving their products and reducing their environmental impact. He specialises in the use of chromatographic and spectroscopic techniques to answer research questions that have a chemical structural component. Current projects include those in carbon capture, waste water treatment and coal drying.
