Nanoscience / Nanotechonology Bio of Joel-Anthony Gray

Joel-Anthony Gray – Nanotechnology Writer

I’ve been fascinated by nanotechnology ever since high school when I first picked up a copy of Eric K. Drexler’s Engine of Creation. Not only did I find the concepts exciting as a science fiction gateway to what the future may hold, I also believe nanoscience to be a great hope of the 21st Century which will be remembered as a Materials Age.

My personal background is nearly as multidisciplinary as nanotechnology, as I have worked in electronics, telecom, mechanical repair, IT, electromagnetic consulting, nanoscience research and semiconductor failure analysis. But when I attended a local college while working on my electrical engineering degree, I had the rare opportunity to work at one of the oldest private nanotechnology companies in the world. (Zyvex which is now Zyvex Labs)

This is where I cut my teeth on scanning electron microscopes, nanoprobing, semiconductor failure analysis and ultra-high vacuum systems. Later I went on to do undergraduate research at the University of Texas at Dallas where I developed experience in cleanroom processing, lab management and nanocharacterization.

I graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering with honors from the University of Texas at Dallas along with a Minor in Nanoscience Technology. (An additional 27 credit hours in courses with a nanotechnology concentration)

Now I am in the process of attaining another degree in Biomedical Engineering and have taken advanced courses in Microbiology, Engineering Physiology of the Human Body, and Biomaterials / Medical Devices.

Also, I currently run an Electromagnetic / Biomedical consulting firm known as ScanTech Technical Consulting which performs environmental testing / troubleshooting for potential health hazards and equipment interference.
