Chief Scientific Officer
Daryl founded the technology transfer office at Rice University where he helped start seven nanotechnology companies. Prior to Rice University, he established the Office of Technology Transfer for the Stevens Institute of Technology. He is an active member of AUTM (the leading organization of technology transfer professionals) and served a two-year term on the board of trustees responsible for member professional development.
Previously, Daryl had a successful 25 year career at AlliedSignal, where he was director of information technologies for Corporate RD&E. He built an integrated organization of engineers and scientists with diverse technical backgrounds to serve the global AlliedSignal engineering community with information technologies, artificial intelligence, chemical and engineering simulation, statistics, materials performance predictions, end-user computing support, systems development, networking and communications.
Daryl was a key member of the AlliedSignal team that re-engineered patent processes across the corporation. He began his career with AlliedSignal as a senior physicist in the Material Research Laboratory where he made seminal discoveries in the physics and chemistry of conducting polymers (for plastic batteries), metallic glass alloys (a new class of engineering materials), amorphous semiconductors, and transition metal complexes.
Prior to AlliedSignal, Daryl was associate professor of Physics at the Polytechnic University of New York, where he pursued theoretical research on low-energy electron-diffraction and on the physics of metal surfaces. Prior to this he was a research associate at the Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge University, where he developed the first successful theory of low-energy electron-diffraction. This theory is the foundation of the field as taught in contemporary textbooks.
