Hi, This is Ashok and I am a technology entrepreneur from Canada. I co-founded the Montreal based startup Stratuscent (formerly called Sensing Dynamics). Stratuscent is building an electronic nose platform based on IoT chemical sensors. In the past I was the CTO of Applied Nanotools where we built X-ray optics & photonics sensors. I have a Ph.D. In Silicon nanoPhotonics from UAlberta. While my current interest lies in chemical sensing and artificial olfaction, I also have research experience & interest in RF design and Fiber-Optics through my Master’s degree research from NUS. Before my sensing/photonic years I worked in the electronics industry as a System designer where I have designed Array Multi-Processor boards for Radar Processing and Video conferencing systems. I have written more than 20 peer reviewed scientific publications in journals, proceedings and books.

Interests: startups, entrepreneurship, financing, emerging technologies, travel, cooking
