Thomas Meany, Director,

Founder OpenCell London, where we build biotech labs in shipping containers. Prior founded another biotech "Cell-Free Technology" that developed high throughput protein analysis tools.
Was a Wellcome Interdisciplinary Fellow developing hardware for synthetic biology at the University of Cambridge. Prior was as a research scientist at the Toshiba Cambridge Research Labs and Cavendish Labs as a Marie Curie Fellow (PICQUE) developing quantum technologies. Completed PhD on direct laser inscription of quantum photonic circuits in glass microchips in the Centre for Ultrahigh bandwidth Devices for Optical Systems (CUDOS), Australia. BSc (1st) in the National University of Ireland, Galway. I first fell in love with optical physics (especially lasers) during a summer internship in École Polytechnique in the LOA with the group of Gilles Cheriaux. I like rowing and drumming.
