Manoj’s first experience with glass goes back to the fabrication of optical waveguides as a final year project at the Optoelectronics Research Centre (Southampton University) in 1990.
A sponsored student with Ferranti Semiconductors, Manoj worked thereafter as a Trainee Patent Agent in London, representing semiconductor manufacturers at the UK, European and US patent offices.
With a long-held fascination for materials science, Manoj founded ArtRatio in 2008 to build smart glass display cases for museums and luxury retailers, and launched SmartGlassWorld thereafter to promote development in smart materials.
Manoj’s experience since 2008 as a manufacturer of smart glass end-products and since 2019 as a smart glass distributor allows for a deep understanding of what customers need in order to achieve a return on investment in smart materials.
Manoj is a UK Chartered Engineer with a Bachelors in Electronics Engineering from Southampton University and a Masters in Software Engineering from Oxford University.
