Tim Vincent

Senior Research Associate

Tim graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry from York University in 1983. After spending 12 years working in finance and accounting for various companies, Tim decided to join VSO (Voluntary Service Overseas) and in 1995 was posted to Guinea-Bissau in West Africa to teach IT at the National Business and Administration College.  Following this 2 year posting, Tim joined a medical research organisation as Coordinator for their research station in a remote village in Guinea-Bissau.  Later he moved to the capital, Bissau, also within a health research environment, as International Coordinator.

Tim returned to the UK in 2018 and continues to have a strong personal interest in Africa, in particular Guinea-Bissau and its development.  Having worked in a research environment as well as corporate environments, combined with having spent many years in Africa, Tim is a real asset to the EiA Research Team.
