    Janos Veres, Program Manager joined PARC

    to manage its Printed Electronics team. His current interests are in combining disruptive material, process, and device technologies -- for printed, flexible circuits; sensor and memory arrays; batteries and display devices -- all with a focus on early commercialization opportunities. Janos has experience in components such as novel printed circuits, organic transistors, and printable semiconductors; applications such as OLEDs, displays, and RFID; as well as printing/coating technologies including electrophotography, flexography, and offset printing.

    Before joining PARC, Janos was the CTO at PolyPhotonix, where he developed radically new process technologies for OLED devices. Prior to that, he worked at Eastman Kodak as their Program Manager of Printed Electronics. Janos also played a key role in establishing and managing several joint development projects with major electronic and printing OEMs when he was a Business Research Associate at Merck Chemicals (formerly Avecia); in addition to generating direct revenue, these projects also led to several World’s first demonstrators built using novel electronic materials. Janos also set up unique pilot production lines for solution coating when he was responsible for Organic Photoreceptor development at Gestetner Byfleet.

    An author on over 20 patents and 40 publications, Janos has published key findings in the physics of organic semiconductor materials such as interface phenomena and the use of blends and phase separation. Dr. Janos Veres holds a Ph.D. in Solid State Electronics from Imperial College in London and an MSc in Physical Electronics with distinction from Lviv Technical University in Ukraine.

    Leon Wong, Director, Market Strategy at PARC.
    With an extensive background in business, product development, and entrepreneurship in the high-tech industry, Leon develops product and commercialization strategies and evaluates emerging technologies and market opportunities at PARC. He currently focuses on the areas of digital manufacturing, mobile health, cleantech & energy and advanced electronics.
