Med has spent over 30 years working in scientific instrumentation and engineering roles in academia and industry. Med brings direct MS and Instrumentation experience through his work at the Universities of Manchester, York, Nottingham Trent and The University of Wales as well as Industrial work at Ionoptika, JET, and Ben4Tech. His training and extensive experience of the instrumentation development and manufacture for MS and related technologies, will be particularly important.
David has a range of experiences working as an R&D technician working previously for PerkinElmer Optoelectronics, BAE and EESA standards inspector, Williams F1, and he spent almost 10 years working for a start-up named Infinitesima Limited developing AFM and SEM technologies which use parallel image analysis using detection in the Fourier space to greatly increase the speed and resolution of analysis. He has extensive experience with assembly/disassembly, cleaning, design and production of scientific instruments including vacuum systems, lasers, and electronics.
Nathan completed his PhD at the University of Surrey in experimental physics where he worked on development of an ion implantation beam for the National Ion Beam Centre. He brings a skillset of understanding of high vacuum and ion optics and a background in experimental physics.
Jack is developing applications for Verdel’s novel mass spectrometry technology, supporting the development of new instrumentation and demonstrating its ability to identify molecules in analytically challenging samples.
His PhD was completed at the University of Bath, UK and explored the use of LC-MS/MS for assessing public and environmental health, through the analysis of proteins of infectious disease, compounds of emerging environmental concern, pharmaceuticals and drugs of abuse in urban and environmental water.
James is a highly experienced innovator in instrumentation, with a broad range of expertise from product development through marketing and application of novel products in sectors from medical through laboratory to petrochemical processing industries, and is an inventor on a dozen instrumentation patents. James has over thirty years of experience including as CSO and R&D Director in instrumentation and material science companies. With that experience, he has gained substantial expertise in intellectual property strategies, market analysis, product development/ introduction, corporate strategy, and mergers and acquisitions.
Alex is an electrical engineer and mass spectrometry instrument developer at the University of Warwick. Alex received his undergraduate degree in Physics from Leeds University and his PhD from the University of Warwick in Physical Chemistry from Prof. Peter Derrick in the early 2000’s. His PhD research involved development of novel electronics and ion optics for transport of ions in the front end of a mass spectrometer, called the ‘ion conveyor’.
With over 20 years of software development in a wide variety of areas, Jon brings an expansive range of experience. Working in many industries, including mobile phone technology (Nokia), medical and healthcare systems (Medical Physics at the Royal Surrey County Hospital) and embedded systems programming, Jon is well set to tackle new and existing challenges. He has an MSc from the University of Surrey and a BSc (hons) from Nottingham Trent University.
