After completing a PhD with Nobel Laurate Konstantin Novoselov I developed a broad interest on the commercialisation of new technologies.
I have a proven record of identifying emerging technologies meeting industrial innovation triggers through meticulous identification of key performance indicators, managing projects from initial research to proof-of-concept, securing grant funding, drafting business plans and execute upon them in order to launch new businesses and establish successful routes to market.
Since the completion of my PhD in 2013, I have consulted, assisted or founded 7 start-up companies all of which are still successfully trading in separate industry verticals in a mixture of product development, technology development and software.
My duties and responsibilities are wide-ranging and include skills traditionally held by posts such as technical director, business development and finance director. I am as comfortable in a laboratory experimenting with novel technologies as I am in a board room discussing strategy and financial forecasts.
