David is a chemical biologist expert in the synthesis of nanomaterials for biological applications. He is co-inventor of Glaia’s core technology developed during his post-doc at the University of Bristol. In 2019 he left the university and together with Imke Sittel they founded Glaia to bring the photosynthetic enhancement technology to the market. Their technology allows plants to harvest light more efficiently and facilitates the processes involved in biomass production resulting in increased crop yields. Glaia aims to effectively help ensure food security in the future as well as reduce the carbon footprint of agricultural food production.
