CEO, NuMat Technologies
I am an entrepreneur with a JD/MBA and an undergraduate degree in engineering from Northwestern. I am a co-founder of NuMat Technologies, an advanced materials company focused on nanoporous materials for separation, purification and encapsulation applications in the semiconductor, industrial defense and life science sectors. I have built this Northwestern company from ground zero and have now raised multiple rounds of capital from strategic and institutional investors. I'm most interested in helping faculty co-founders think through how best to commercialize their inventions at the earliest stages.
