I have a PhD in synthetic organic chemistry. I have conducted research in the area of organometallic chemistry, the chemistry of in vivo imaging agents and other topics. My team was responsible for the chemical development of an ultrasound imaging agent which is now in clinical trials. My current research interests include targeted ultrasound imaging contrast agents and blood substitutes. Since 1998 I have followed the display industry closely. This includes developments in LCD, OLED, TMOS, Thick film dielectric, FED (field emission display), CNTs, elctrowetting (E-ink) and Mirasol. Corollary to this I have followed surface modified films in a number of contexts including light outcoupling, medical applications and uses as screen protectants.
