Dr. Damian Gardiner


Damian was a Royal Academy of Engineering Enterprise Fellow. The funding, training, and mentoring provided by the Fellowship allowed Damian to establish a spin-out company, Illumink to commercialise the printable liquid crystal laser technology recently pioneered in CMMPE. Since his fellowship, Damian’s company has grown and was recently aquired by Tracerco, a subsidiary of Johnson Matthey. Damian received his MPhys degree in Physics from the University of Southampton (2001), followed by a PhD at Wolfson College, University of Cambridge.
