Partner

IBM Venture Capital Group

I am currently a Partner in IBM\'s Venture Capital Group.

Prior to this I held various positions in IBM Global Services, focussed on transforming the business toward models which are less labor-based and which improve productivity and differentiation through increased use of innovative technologies (what we broadly refer to as \"services technology assets\").

Prior to this at IBM, I have been involved with developing emerging businesses, based at least in part from technologies developed in our Research laboratories. This has included a variety of businesses based on hardware, software, services, and various nanotech-related technologies.

I also serve as an advisor to several small companies.

Prior to joining IBM, I co-founded and managed several companies in the areas importing, marketing, and distribution of consumer products; specialty polymer products; and intellectual property and product development.

Previously, I was a Research Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Arizona.

I also served for eleven years as a consultant, where I assisted large and small businesses with managing product research and development efforts and with IP strategy and litigation.

I have led fundamental and applied research efforts relating to optical and electrical properties of nanostructured materials and devices, with a focus on electrochromic technology for \"smart windows.\" I have also led research efforts relating to interfacial properties of medical polymers and to wetting and fluid flow in microporous materials. I have authored numerous publications and book chapters in the technical literature.

I received my B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from M.I.T., and I received M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Materials Science and Engineering and Optical Sciences from the University of Arizona.
