Rockley Photonics Appoints Andy Parker
Founding science partner of Ahren Innovation Capital and head of University of Cambridge’s Cavendish Laboratory joins the board
Rockley Photonics has announced the appointment of Andy Parker (pictured above), founding science partner of Ahren Innovation Capital and head of University of Cambridge's Cavendish Laboratory, to its board of directors. This follows the announcement of Ahren's recent investment in Rockley Photonics.
“Rockley Photonics is emerging as a transformational business with technology that has the potential to profoundly impact a number of markets,” said Parker. “Rockley's bespoke fabrication process is ideally suited to high-volume production of low-cost sensors. Its platform is highly versatile, and I am looking forward to working with the team to further develop this technology in a range of sectors including data centre connectivity, autonomous vehicles and medical sensing.”
“His work in developing silicon detectors, fast electronics and computational radiotherapy fully complements the board's existing expertise,” said Andrew Rickman, Chief Executive at Rockley Photonics. “Andy's insight will be invaluable as we drive forward applications of Rockley's technology in multiple markets including high-density communications; machine vision; environmental sensing and healthcare.”
AngelTech Online Summit - Tuesday 19th May
The health and well-being of AngelTech speakers, partners, employees and the overall community is our top priority. Due to the growing concern around the coronavirus (COVID-19), and in alignment with the best practices laid out by the CDC, WHO and other relevant entities, AngelTech decided to postpone the live Brussels event to 16th - 18th November 2020.
In the interim, we believe it is still important to connect the community and we want to do this via an online summit, taking place live on Tuesday May 19th at 12:00 GMT
and content available for 12 months on demand. This will not replace the live event (we believe live face to face interaction, learning and networking can never be fully replaced by a virtual summit), it will supplement the event, add value for key players and bring the community together – digitally.
The event will involve 4 breakout sessions for CS International, PIC International, Sensors International and PIC Pilot Lines.
Key elements of the online summit:
- Covering key topics of the industries
- Live 3 hour online summit
- 10 minute presentations – learn from experts in the industry
- Recorded product demos
- Live audience questions
- Enhanced discussion and audience interaction
- Video panel sessions
- Sponsors digital booth (intro video, company content, lead generator, facilitate one on one video meetings with attendees)
- Live private video meetings between two or more attendees
- After the live event, monthly keynotes to drive traffic to the event 24/7, 365
Innovation is in AngelTech’s DNA and we are leveraging this strength to bring you an immersive and inspiring online event without the risk of travel during this uncertain period.
