Vincent Wallace has over 20 years of experience in Biophotonics. He graduated with a PhD in Medical Physics from the University of London, in 1997. After three years at the Beckman Laser Institute, UC Irvine, he joined Toshiba Research in Cambridge, UK to look at potential medical applications of terahertz radiation. TeraView Ltd, also based in Cambridge, was spun-out of Toshiba Labs in April 2001. At TeraView, Vince led a group looking at medical applications of terahertz. In 2007 he moved to the University of Western Australia where he continues to apply terahertz and other techniques to biomedical and clinical problems.
