Professor Vincent Craig completed both his B.Sc. (Honours in Chemistry, 1993) and Ph.D. degrees (Reasearch School of Physics, 1997) at the ANU before postdoctoral positions at UC Davis, California and the University of Newcastle, NSW. He was awarded an ARC Postdoctoral fellowship in 1998 and an ARC Research Fellowship in 2001 and is currently on an ARC Future Fellowship. He was formerly the Head of the Department from Jan 2009-Jan 2012.
His research interests include the direct measurement of surface forces - both quasistatic and dynamic, interfacial adsorption of surfactants and polymers, surface and bulk nanobubbles, controlled wetting, specific ion effects and bubble coalescence in electrolyte solutions. He has considerable experience in the development of scientific instrumentation.

He has published over 100 fully referees journal papers which have been cited over 5800 times for a H factor of 34.
