Professor Craig Banks

Associate Editor

Craig E. Banks  is based at Manchester Metropolitan University and has published over 240 papers, written 4 books, contributed 11 book chapters, inventor of 15 patents and an Honorary Professor at Xiangtan University. Craig has also spun out two companies from his research. Craig was awarded the Harrison-Meldola Memorial Prize in 2011 for his contributions to the understanding of carbon materials, in particular graphene and its application as an electrode material. His current research is directed towards the pursuit of studying the fundamental understanding and applications of nano-electrochemical systems such as graphene, carbon nanotube and nanoparticle derived sensors and developing novel electrochemical sensors via screen printing and related techniques.
