Dr. Paul Rhodes, Founder and CEO

Dr. Rhodes leads Evolved Machines (http://www.evolvedmachines.com/), a leader in the development of sensory device platforms based upon the reverse engineering of biological neural circuitry. This work is grounded in two areas of application, olfactory and visual object recognition. He has published over 30 papers and abstracts, including an invited review chapter on the functional implications of active dendrites in cortical pyramidal neurons. Dr. Rhodes has been the founder of 4 successful companies in other industries. He combines a proven record of success in both academic research into the function of neural circuits as well as in the organization and management of teams of people in successful corporate settings. Dr Rhodes is PI for and heads overall management of the Evolved Machines Prime Contract under the RealNose DARPA program, overseeing a team of 8 universities and corporations, including Xerox PARC, to deliver an end-to-end artificial olfaction device capable of sensitive detection in real-world conditions. During this project Evolved Machines led the successful development of the first integrated nanotube FET sensor array. Dr Rhodes education includes: AB Physics, Harvard University, MS Physics, Stanford University and PhD Neuroscience, NYU Medical School.

 
 
Ray Martino, Founder and COO

Prior to IMC, Mr. Martino was CTO at Motorola Inc., Enterprise Mobility Business. At Motorola Mr. Martino led development of new products, technology and businesses for Mobile Computing, Data Collection and Wireless businesses. Prior to Motorola Mr. Martino was with Symbol Technologies for over 20 years. When Mr. Martino joined Symbol its revenue was $20M. In the twenty years that followed Symbol’s revenue grew to over $2B before being acquired by Motorola in 2007 for $3.9B. Symbol Technologies was the worldwide market leader for Mobile Computing and Data Collection serving Government, Transportation, Logistics, Retail supply chain Manufacturing and Healthcare markets.

At the time of Motorola’s purchase of Symbol Technologies Mr. Martino was, and had previously been CTO, General Manager, VP Engineering and VP Marketing. As General Manager Mr. Martino grew Symbol’s wireless business unit 75% in a 2 yr period, from near $80M to over $140M, gaining market share and the #2 overall position in WiFi network equipment market.

As VP of Engineering Mr. Martino had a long track record of engineering and producing successful innovative products including: the world’s first Mobile Computer with Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN), the world’s first Wearable Mobile Computing System, the companies first bar code scanning engine, pioneer of and first in the world to market WiFi (802.11) products, world’s first VoIP Wireless Phone and worlds first WLAN Switch. As VP of Marketing Mr. Martino led sales engagements for critical and large accounts growing sales from a few tens of millions to near $80M. Ray co-founded the organization that branded WiFi and led industry collaboration.

 
 
Dr. Sung Lim, Founder and Chief Scientist

Dr. Sung Lim is the co-inventor of the sol-gel nanoporous colormetric array technology on which iSense sensors are based. His post doctoral industry experience includes 4 years at LG High Tech Printing. Dr. Lim received his B.A. from Northwestern University and his Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He then spent four years as a senior scientist at LG Chem developing new coating and ink formulation technology that commercialized under LGCOM brand. More recently, he has been a postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Professor Kenneth Suslick at the University of Illinois and developed the new nanoporous pigment sensor array technology. He has deep practical experience in the controlled and verified delivery of analytes and analyte mixture at verified trace concentrations. Dr Lim’s education includes a BA from Northwestern and a PhD from University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana.
