Seb's background is as a medical doctor in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care. He invented a method of recycling anaesthetic gases and stepped out of medicine to develop the technology, which is now available on the commercial market. Seb went on to work for the government on ventilators for the UK ventilator challenge and now runs a company developing a new form of ventilator and anaesthesia device. He uses this experience to work with the BRC theme leads to provide support in technology transfer and commercialisation.

Seb's BRC role is varied and focuses around the needs of the theme leads to make the biggest impact from their work, be that helping technologies develop from the laboratory to patients or generating a service offering that can be used across multiple technologies. A chief priority is to meet BRC researchers and help them apply commercial practice to support grant applications and prototype technologies to spin out companies.
