As Associate Director, Tony is responsible for supporting the protection and licensing of software and inventions created at Princeton University, with a particular focus on assisting Princeton researchers in all aspects of the development of startup companies to move their research innovations out of the lab and into the marketplace.

After earning a PhD in chemistry from the University of Cambridge, Tony gained postdoctoral research experience in materials chemistry at the University of Edinburgh, and then at Princeton University in the laboratory of Professor Robert Cava.  He later earned an MBA from the University of Oxford, where he won a competitive fellowship to work for the university’s technology transfer office. Prior to starting at Princeton in February 2016 as New Ventures Associate, he worked on the Technology Ventures team at Imperial Innovations, the technology transfer office of Imperial College London and one of the UK’s leading investors in academic research-based startups.
