Dr. Winnie Chu, Founder and CTO – Nanozen was founded by Dr. Winnie Chu, a former faculty member at the University of British Columbia and an expert in nanosensor technology. Dr. Chu spent her early career conducting compliance-based sampling and analysis for the detection and prevention of workplace exposure to damaging aerosols and air-borne particulates. Her client base included environmental agencies, occupational agencies, and industrial organizations. Recognizing a pressing need to improve on detection practices and technologies, Dr. Chu turned her efforts towards the design and fabrication of affordable, wearable, and highly accurate sensors that deliver immediate, real-time results across a diverse mix of environmental and occupational applications. Dr. Chu currently serves on the environmental sensor review panel at the US National Science Foundation.
