Bob has 35 years of experience developing and manufacturing products utilizing film coating processes. His career path prior to Chasm includes assignments at Stone & Webster Engineering, Polaroid Corporation, Presstek, Vitex Systems, and Precision Lithograining. Bob has a BS and MS in chemical engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and MBA from Boston University. He co-founded Chasm in March 2005 to apply his experience in coated film products and associated science and engineering to develop commercially viable pathways to product applications, beginning with a wide range of “nano-materials” and “nano-technologies.” The applications for these technical areas have included flat panel displays, fuel cells, photovoltaics, film substrate development, optical film development, carbon nanotube applications, life sciences, and nano-imprint lithography. In addition to the process work in these areas, Chasm has designed and managed capital equipment projects totaling more than $10 million for roll-to-roll coating lines and nano-material manufacturing facilities. Bob is member of the Society for Information Displays and the American Chemical Society.
