Advisors

 

Prof. John Lee is Associate Professor in Mechanical Engineering at SJSU and conducts research primarily in the field of microfluidics. His doctoral work from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology focused on a novel “three-dimensional printing” process using a variety of ceramic and metal powders, selectively bonded by custom-designed printheads for colloidal silica ink. He is co-inventor of 10 U.S. patents involving micro fuel cell design and fabrication, and is co-author of a book Microfabrication for Microfluidics (published 2010 by Artech House, Boston, MA).

 

Dr. Daniel Colbert is president of Colbert Venture Consulting and advises Zikon on business strategy, development, and technology. As a Professor of Chemistry at Rice University, Dr. Colbert was a pioneer in nanotechnology, with over 50 patents and over 50 research papers. He co-founded a leading nanotech startup with Nobel Laureate Rick Smalley, and led business development there. He has co-founded three technology startups, and twice been a venture investor in cleantech, materials, and nanotech.

 

Dr. Leslie Field is the Founder and Managing Member of SmallTech Consulting, LLC and the Founder and CEO of MEMS Insight, Inc.
