Mechanical Engineer, Wooden Boat Restorer
Hugh’s five-year wooden boat restoration project led to a career in mechanical engineering at Invetech.
“A desire to understand the engineering concepts behind many elements of the rebuild led me back to university to study mechanical engineering. There a door opened into the world of medical device development and microfluidics, eventually leading me to Invetech where thankfully there’s also no shortage of challenging engineering problems to tackle.”
Designer, Innovator, Caricaturist
Our go-to man for creative thinking from breakthrough innovation to staff caricatures. “I love the challenge of idea generation and innovation workshops. And I strongly believe artistically rich visual communication is key to effective problem solving.”
UX/XD Interaction Designer, Tennis and Basketball Player, Home Chef/Baker, Traveller
Christian’s passion for experience design stems from his desire to understand people on a deep emotional level while they interact with technology and their environment. “I come from a family of artists and have always wanted to merge art, technology and communication.”

Electronics Engineer, Author, Antiques Collector
Among many projects, Ian has been the leading light of our RoHS offering–a role that calls for extraordinary attention to detail. Naturally, this trait is evident in Ian’s private pursuits including spending 10 years writing a definitive text on the history of Roman coinage, in his spare time.
“One of my more memorable projects was developing a molecular diagnostic platform for detecting tuberculosis in 3rd world countries. From a technical perspective, it was challenging integrating so much technology into a compact instrument including sample preparation, ultrasonics, rapid PCR, electrophoresis, optics and microfluidics. How we whooped with delight when a perfect electropherogram first appeared on the screen!”
Designer, Usability Engineer, Musician
Multifaceted Max, musician, songwriter, band manager, creative artist, designer and engineer at Invetech. “My recent usability activities on a large instrument program have been particularly rewarding as I know my contribution will enable the end user to have the best possible operating experience whilst removing the potential for user-error.”

From telecommunications (including, mobile telephony, mobile hotspot and base-station technology) to in vitro diagnostics (specifically Point of Care biomedical instrument workflow development), Kevin’s career has been varied.
In his free time, you can find Kevin playing golf with his family or singing bass in a choir (though not at the same time).
Scientist, Laboratory Specialist, Photographer
Not content with his busy role in the laboratories of Invetech, Ali spends his Saturdays working for a pathology laboratory. “It’s something I’m just passionate about. I get to experience new, automated systems and keep my skills fresh in terms of being an active lab user.”
Marketing and Sales Operations Manager, Sometimes Gardener
An integral member of team Invetech, Jennifer manages to crunch substantial amounts of data to keep the sales and marketing teams supplied with key metrics.
