Mincy graduated in Biotechnology from Anna University, India in 2010. She gained her Masters in Nanotechnology from Amrita Centre for Nanosciences and Molecular Medicine (ACNSMM), Amrita Vishwa Vidhyapeetham University, India in 2012. After completion of her course, she continued there as a Senior Research Fellow, working in an industrial project in collaboration with TATA Chemicals. In 2014, she joined the Bristol Centre for Functional Nanomaterials, University of Bristol, for PhD in an EPSRC funded project.
Her PhD was interdisciplinary based in the School of Dentistry, School of Chemistry and Bristol Heart Institute (BHI). Her work was based on the synthesis and characterization of electrospun gelatin nanofibrous scaffolds with different matrix stiffness and investigating their effects in determining the human cardiac pericyte behaviour in terms of its adhesion, proliferation and differentiation.
She joined the School of Dentistry, University of Birmingham in July 2019 as a Research Fellow. Currently, she is working on developing cell encapsulated injectable hydrogels for treating cleft lips and palates.
