Bound to the vision of Exum Instruments, Jeff drives both strategy and technical development as CEO. From instrument design and software development, to team building and fundraising, Jeff prides himself on being both “head cook and bottle washer.”
Before Exum’s conception, Jeff completed a Masters in Cosmochemistry from the University of New Mexico. It was from that time, he realized that the analytical world he loved so much was greatly lacking. Slowly at first, and then all at once he switched hats from research scientist to entrepreneur with a mission to develop tools that would redefine analytical instruments forever. When he’s not on the ground, managing Exum’s day to day, he’s in the clouds dreaming about its future.
Exum builds instruments and software ecosystems to increase the speed of development and discovery, offering easy access to high-performance at a low-cost. Our first instrument, The Massbox, is the first Laser Ablation Laser Ionization Time of Flight Mass Spectrometer (LALI-TOF-MS) instrument on the market, capable of analyzing any sample you can throw at it.
