Dr. Radu Berdan
CEO

Radu Berdan is the CEO and Product Lead and oversees the development of the full range of array control instruments. His expertise comes from several years of designing and manufacturing measurement equipment utilised in academic environments, with a focus on accessibility and user-friendliness, while not compromising on performance. 

Radu completed his PhD at Imperial College London, UK, where his research was focused on emerging non-volatile resistive memories and their utilisation in conventional analogue electronics.  He has co-authored several research papers and presented his work in leading international conferences on circuit design. 

Prior to his postgraduate position, Radu received his BSc (Hons.) from University of Sheffield, UK in Electronic Engineering with an award for best dissertation in the department honoring the design of a platform for noise measurements in avalanche photodiodes. Radu also received the Sheffield Graduate Award for his contributions to the Students Union, where he co-founded a local branch of an international electrical engineering student’s organisation (EESTEC) which he led throughout his studies.
