I joined TIAX in 2002 and continued on with CAMX Power. Currently, I head the continued development of CAM-7 including its next-generation versions, as well as our advanced materials. I also work on our technology and IP strategies and pursuits.  I am one of the inventors of the next generation core patents. My formal training was in Chemical Engineering with a B. Tech. from Indian Institute of Technology, MS from University of Wyoming and PhD (1999) from University of Washington. During the initial years of TIAX, I worked on SOFCs, PEMFCs, and automotive after-treatment systems. Since 2005, I have been focused on the development of our materials (including our cathode materials), safety and cell technologies, providing both technical and management leadership.
