Vincent obtained his PhD from Queen’s School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering in 2020, having previously graduated with a Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering in 2015.
Vincent’s PhD research investigated the impact design and manufacturing decisions have on product quality and cost. He developed a methodology to relate variation to cost in a multistage production system. This revealed the interdependencies between each stage in a production chain, allowing them to be assessed holistically to minimise the overall production cost.
In addition to his research, Vincent has gained experience through several industrial roles. He completed a placement as a vehicle design engineer at Red Bull F1 during their championship winning years of 2012 and 2013. He has also worked in aircraft maintenance management as a CAMO engineer at Celairion in Austria, and most recently as a process engineer at Brett Martin.
In summer 2021 he joined the Biohaviour team as a research fellow as part of the Re-imagining engineering design project.
