I am a former research scientist in biochemistry and molecular biology.  I obtained a Ph.D. degree in biochemistry from King’s College, University of Cambridge in England and a Research Fellowship from the UK Science Research Council.  After this I carried out research and teaching at the Rockefeller University, the Center for Advanced Biotechnology and Medicine, and at the Lindsley F. Kimball Research Institute in New York City where I was  a Laboratory Head and the Director of Microchemistry.  After this, I served as the CEO of IGene Diagnostics, a silicon valley startup company which designed and manufactured high speed genetic test instruments.  

Since 2017 I have been studying the Japanese language and Japanese cultural and political history.
