    Faculty of Engineering


Vince received a B.Eng. Biosciences in Chemical Engineering at McMaster University in 2009. He then completed his M.A.Sc. in 2011 and his Ph.D. in 2018 in Chemical Engineering at McMaster. Vince’s research focused on the development of a thermostabilization platform for biomedical applications such as point-of-care diagnostics, food safety, and vaccine deployment. During his graduate studies, Vince taught several undergraduate courses and he developed a deep passion for teaching and learning. This passion led him to join McMaster as a teaching-track faculty member in 2019.
