Dr. Bin Zou – Chief Executive Officer CEO -PhD in physical electronics( Southbank University London) and materials, specializing in piezoelectric and ferroelectric materials. He has over ten years of experience in multilayer thin film deposition, thin filmstructure analysis, nanotechnology, lithography techniques, material characterisation, nano-scale device design, device fabrication and electrical and magnetic measurements.

Dr. Jan Zemen – Chief Scientific Officer CSO- MSc in Theoretical Solid State Physics and PhD in Materials Science. He has over ten years of experience in modelling spintronic devices and materials for applications in information storage including dilute magnetic semiconductors (PhD), magnetic tunnel junctions and magnetic nanowires (EPSRC Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Nottingham), and metallic antiperovskites (Imperial College London).

Dr. Evgeniy Donchev –Chief Operations Officer COO- MEng in Aerospace Materials and PhD in nanotechnology and thin-films from Imperial College London. He has five years of experience with physical vapour deposition
processes, lithographic techniques, etching and characterisation on the nanoscale. During his university education, his interest
in helping with the management of the institutions biggest asset class, namely the students, has seen him become involved in leading the student voice as the Materials Department representative.

Dr. Andrei Mihai – Chief Technical Officer CTO- PhD in Materials Physics (Universite Grenoble Alpes), specialising in magnetic materials and nanostructures. He has over ten years of experience in developing magnetic nano-devices for spintronics, including working in Domain Wall Spintronics and MRAM. Andrei has undertaken
several Postdoctoral Fellowship roles at several high research impact European institutions including Imperial College London, University of Leeds, and Johannes Gutenberg University – Mainz.
