Chris J. Wright is a Reader within the Multidisciplinary Nanotechnology Centre (MNC) at Swansea University. At Swansea he works as an Executive Member of the Centre for NanoHealth and an Associate Director of the Centre for Complex Fluids Processing. He graduated from the University of Wales in 1996 with a Ph.D. degree in biochemical engineering. In 2001, he was awarded a prestigious Advanced Research Fellowship from the UK’s Engineering and Physical Research Council (EPSRC) in recognition of his innovative research applying atomic force microscopy (AFM) to the characterisation of membrane and biological surfaces. This five-year award allowed him to establish an internationally recognised research group exploiting the capabilities of AFM. In 2006, he was appointed Portfolio Director for Process Engineering at Swansea University and is now Director of Ph.D. studies in the MNC. His research continues with combination of AFM with advanced light microscopy methods to study biological interfaces at the nanoscale for optimisation and control within the process industry and health care. Wright has over 80 peer-reviewed international publications with one book and 15 invited book chapter and review articles within the research area.
