The Executive Board all have prior experience working together for a start-up
Niall has a background as a Financial Analyst and Project Manager for Blue Chip banks such as Credit Suisse. He now provides expertise in fundraising to start-up companies in renewable energy.
Mark devised Lambda’s core concept in 2017, inspired by his work building communications systems. He has a background in satellite engineering, with a very broad knowledge of physics and engineering. He worked as Project Manager on a NASA-funded mission before moving into the renewables sector.
Monica is an exceptional nanomaterials scientist with close ties to academia at Cambridge University. She gained an Engineer Doctorate from the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) and is expert in techniques for materials processing and characterisation
Boris obtained a PhD in chemistry from the Florida State University, working in the field of organic photochemistry. Subsequent postdoctoral appointments brought him to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he was part of a project with the aim of converting solar power into chemical energy, and to the University of Cambridge, where he was working on supramolecular self-assembly. Dr Breiner has more than 8 years of experience in industrial R&D.
Norbert obtained his MChem from Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) with research project focusing on Microwave Dielectric Spectroscopy study of pigment suspensions. Norbert worked on interdisciplinary projects with Microbiology and Material Chemistry for applications of zeolites in anticorrosive coatings and delaying food degradation. He completed his PhD at UCL focusing on fluorine-free and transparent superhydrophobic coatings of polymer-particle nanocomposites. Norbert has further experience on metal oxide crosslinking of silicones and environmental durability tests.
Iain is a serial entrepreneur and is a non-executive director for numerous successful cleantech enterprises. His company, Renewable Power, developed more than 100MW of UK solar farm capacity.
Lambda has been closely supported by academics at several UK universities including Cambridge, Bath and Cranfield. Cranfield has previously performed prototyping under Lambda-sponsored projects under under the supervision of Dr Monica Saavedra. Lambda has new government grants with Pilkington and Cambridge and Bath universities to synthesise novel active material, make films and deposit them on greenhouses for crop growth trials.
