Dr Alaric Taylor joins UCL Biochemical Engineering

4 May 2020

We're pleased to welcome Alaric to UCL Biochemical Engineering's technical workshop team

Dr Aleric Taylor UCL Biochemical Engineering

Alaric obtained his BSc in Physics from Imperial College London and went on to the University of Cambridge’s Department of Engineering where he received an MRes in Photonic Systems. He was awarded a PhD for his work on bio-inspired thermally-responsive glazing from University College London (Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering).

Alaric spent time working for Microsoft on the Hololens project in Finland as part of the Advanced Optics Rapid Prototyping team. He then returned to the UK to take-up an EPSRC Doctoral Prize Fellowship within UCL’s Department of Chemistry in collaboration with Biolin Scientific dedicated to the development of low-cost, up-scalable strategies for nanostructuring functional materials via lithographic, nanosphere self-assembly. Recently, he has worked as a research associate developing in-vitro diagnostic medical devices / bioanalytical methods within the Adaptive and Responsive Nanomaterials group in UCL’s Department of Chemical Engineering as part of an EU Horizon 2020 consortium project (DIACHEMO).

Alaric joins the department as a member of Rapid Prototyping & Fabrication Facility headed by Erich Herrmann. He has design experience for optical, vacuum, fluidic and electronic systems and works with both CNC and additive fabrication techniques mimicking down-stream manufacture.
