Brian Vincent has strong research interests in a wide variety of areas, looking at systems of both academic and industrial significance. Research topics include microgel particles, monodisperse and surfactant-free "silicone" oil-in-water emulsions; a variety of core-shell systems, microemulsions, adsorption studies of polymers and their influence on dispersancy properties; and particle deposition/adsorption onto macroscopic surfaces.


Professor Vincent obtained a PhD from the University of Bristol (1969). After research assignments at the University of Wageningen, The Netherlands, and ICI Paints, UK, he joined the University of Bristol as a lecturer in 1972. Professor Vincent retired at the end of 2007.
