Christopher Striemer, Ph.D.Vice President of Technology
Chris is a founder and current Vice President of Technology for Adarza, responsible for technology development for the next generation Arrayed Imaging Reflectometry assay system. Pursuing applications relevant to his doctoral experience applying silicon nanostructures in biological applications and alternative energy fields, Chris spent the last 12 years working for university spinout companies that bridge the gap between precisely structured silicon chips and biological environments. He brings a wealth of expertise to Adarza in engineering process development, thin film optics and nanoscale materials. Chris has co-authored over 10 patent applications, has 30 peer-reviewed publications, has been the Principle Investigator on Phase I and II SBIR projects with total funding over $2.5M, and has been invited to present his work on optical biosensing and nanostructured materials at conferences in the U.S. and Europe. He received his PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Rochester.
