Having worked 27 years in a world-class "Analytical Sciences" organization, he developed a unique expertise in solving complex problems. The latter sometimes led to "Discovery of New Concepts" that translated to new business growth. Successful case histories of complex problem solving and technology development have led him to deliver numerous invited lectures on a global basis, "New Concept & Business Development from Analytical Sciences". Although, highly specialized in "Thermal Analysis (DSC, TGA, TMA, DMA) & Rheology", he has enough knowledge of complementary analytical techniques. He is passionate about demonstrating if & why product "A" is different from product "B" and then recommending solutions to bridge the gap or reverse the trend. This type of expertise has formed the basis of 2 International awards, 21 US patents and major business awards.
