What made you want to work in the chemistry field?
I have always enjoyed developing new materials that are better in properties and better for the environment.
What type of application development programs do you specialize in?
I focus on developing new combinations of materials (i.e. formulations) and optimal processes to provide customers with high performance, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly solutions.
What is the next project or product that you would be most excited to explore?
I would be most excited to explore an application where no other flame retardant can meet the needs but Nofia materials. For example, a high tenacity flame retardant industrial fiber may be a good fit.
What technology gets you excited?
Anything new that brings an innovative solution to an unmet need.
What’s something you want to learn or get better at?
Japanese, so I can serve customers in the region better.
