Business Development Associate
Benjamin is currently working on a joint project between the Department of Chemistry and the Institute for Manufacturing in Cambridge.
His PhD focuses on the development of a method for fabrication of biodegradable photonic pigments and is funded by an allocation of the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions for Plant-inspired Materials and Surfaces.
Prior starting his PhD, Benjamin joined a leading French Cleantech start-up since its launch as Chief Science Officer where he was in charge of developing the start-up’s core technology and expanding business.
Through engaging in the innovation Forum, Benjamin wishes to leverage his insights into some of the unique features of start-up pioneers in order to encourage and support high potential technologies from the broad research community shaping a better society in Cambridge and beyond.
