Victor holds and BSc in Product Design from Brunel University and a MSc in Ergonomic and Inclusive Design from Loughborough University.
After graduating from Brunel University for 3 years Victor has been a freelance graphic designer. After this he did an MSc in Ergonomics and Inclusive Design, leading into working as a lab assistant working under Dr Mike Fray and being funded by a Loughborough Entrepreneurial grant to build equipment that would aid visually impaired children to run in a safe environment. It was through this work that led to further funding via Design Star to further develop this work in the form of a PhD.
Much of his most recent work has been lab work helping in various clients orientated projects for Loughborough in patient handling and product testing. Now his PhD focuses on developing a sport tools for visually impaired children.
