Vincent S. J. Craig

Vince Craig is Head of the Department of Applied Mathematics at the Australian National University (ANU) in the Research School of Physics and Engineering. He completed both his B.Sc. (chemistry, 1993) and Ph.D. degrees (Research School of Physics, 1997) at the ANU before postdoctoral positions at the University of California, Davis, and the University of Newcastle, New South Wales. He is currently the recipient of an ARC Future Fellowship on the topic of specific ion effects. His other research interests include the direct measurement of surface forces, both quasistatic and dynamic, interfacial adsorption of surfactants and polymers, bubble coalescence in electrolyte solutions, and nanobubbles.

AFM experiments suggest the long lifetime of surface nanobubbles is due to a balanced influx and outflux of gas molecules.
