Physicist and Nanotechnologist Specialized in Probe/Atomic Force Microscopy, Biophysics, and Nanomedicine

Technical Consultant #1803


Expertise

  • Nanotechnology research and development in biology and biophysics, neuroscience, materials science, physics, engineering and pharmaceuticals.
  • Process strategy, data acquisition and analysis, client communication and reporting, in academic and corporate environments.
  • Technical proficiency in many surface analytical techniques, clean room processing, and bio-lab practices.
  • Designed and engineered (CAD) add-on modules for combined TIRF/AFM microscopy.

Experience

Undisclosed Company, Director of Nanotechnology, 2006 - Present

  • Started nanotechnology division in bio-pharmaceutical small business environment.
  • Set up and managed Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) lab with integrated fluorescence microscopy.
  • Developed total internal reflection fluorescence LED device to be used as an add-on to atomic force microscopy from concept CAD design to prototype building.
  • Managed and executed probe microscopy projects for pharmaceutical client, including data acquisition, analysis, and reporting.
  • Evaluated grants and patent applications to decide which avenues to pursue in product development.
  • Synthesized and compiled information from different disciplines to present potential applications and commercial opportunities to upper management.
  • Adapted quickly to turn from academic to industrial environment with a focus towards product commercialization.

University of California, (UCSB), Neuroscience Research Institute, Santa Barbara, CA, 2003 - 2006

  • Filled the rolls of Post Graduate Researcher and Project Scientist.
  • Used AFM to show that connexin channels play a role in cell volume regulation.
  • Used AFM to show that several amyloid peptides form ion channels in reconstituted lipid bilayers.
  • Used electron beam and photo lithography to create nano patterned surfaces for bilayer conductance measurements with AFM probes.
  • Built microchannel viscosity and biosensor using AFM cantilevers.
  • Adapted from physics/engineering applications to biological applications in nanoscience.

Uppsala University, Department of Surface Biotechnology, Sweden, 1999 - 2003

Malardalen University, Department Chemical Engineering, Sweden, 1999 - 2003

  • Lecturer and Researcher for the following subjects: Materials Science, Biophysics, and Chemical Engineering.
  • Performed collaborative research in the departments of chemical engineering, surface biotechnology, physics and materials sciences.
  • Investigated surface properties using electron spectroscopy, electron beam lithography, photolithography, and scanning probe microscopy resulting in an electrochemical surface activation method for biosensing.
  • Appointed as Assistant Supervisor for three graduate student theses.
  • Created and taught undergraduate Scanning Probe Microscopy/Ellipsometry course in chemical engineering, plus an advanced version for graduate students in Biotechnology.
  • Taught undergraduate Surface Biotechnology course in chemical engineering curriculum.
