After completing a PhD with Nobel Laureate 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 products and establish successful routes to market and secure company growth.
Since the completion of my PhD I have consulted, assisted or founded companies operating in separate industry verticals. 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.
