About Me
 

Dr Andy Collins - QTEC Manager
I have been at the University of Bristol for several years and was previously the Industrial Research Fellow for the Bristol Centre for Functional Nanomaterials. While there I was the interface for companies undertaking research with the BCFN, managed research and undertook consultancy in materials chemistry and Atomic Force Microscopy. I also wrote a book called "Nanotechnology Cookbook", a practical guide to all things nanoscale.

Recently I became the manager for the Quantum Technology Enterprise Centre and will be responsible for delivering and supporting all aspects of the Centres strategy and development. I am looking forward to helping scientists make the transition into enterprise and taking some exciting technology out of the lab and into peoples lives. Away from work I enjoy mountaineering, mountain biking and amateur programming.
