With the ChemSpider team I am leading the charge to show how experience, knowledge and insight can build a platform to facilitate "Building a Structure Centric Community for Chemists." Through ChemSpider (www.chemspider.com) we are providing the means by which a Semantic Web for chemistry can be realized now.
Over the past decade I held many responsibilities including the direction of the development of scientific software applications for spectroscopy and general chemistry, directing marketing efforts, sales and business development collaborations for the company. Eight years experience of analytical laboratory leadership and management. Experienced in experimental techniques, implementation of new NMR technologies, walk-up facility management, research and development, manufacturing support and teaching. Ability to provide situation analysis, creative solutions and establish good working relationships. Prolific author with over a hundred peer-reviewed scientific publications, 3 patents and many public presentations.
Founder of ChemZoo Inc., the host of ChemSpider (www.chemspider.com). ChemSpider is an open access online database of chemical structures and property transaction based services to enable chemists around the world to data mine chemistry databases. The Royal Society of Chemistry acquired ChemSpider in May 2009.
Presently working as a consortium member of the OpenPHACTS IMI project. This focuses on how drug discovery can utilize semantic technologies to improve decision making and brings together 22 European team members to develop an infrastructure to link together public and private data for the drug discovery community.
