A little bit about me
Hello, my name is Alec Wright a technology manager and inventor working within reduced-risk tobacco products helping to provide adult smokers with the best possible product to still enjoy nicotine.
I am someone who thoroughly enjoys taking the lead and feels passionate about the benefits of involving myself in as much as I possibly can. I am constantly seeking fresh opportunities and finding ways to challenge myself to grow and improve.
I have a strong academic background with a Masters in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering plus a PhD also in chemical engineering with cross over into applied physics, electrical engineering and microbiology. Throughout my academic career which included several research assistant positions, I published over 10 peer-reviewed papers and filled two patents demonstrating my ability to produce results within a short space of time.
This has been continued within my industrial career where I have over 50 patent applications to date. In addition to inventing new ideas, I also manage the technical aspects of projects making decisions on where improvements can be made, fault finding and data analysis.
