Dr Robin Taylor, our CTO and Co-Founder, has worked in the field of medical device development for over 15 years, 10 of which spent developing advanced optical measurement techniques. He has extensive expertise across all the key engineering disciplines including software, electronics, mechanical and optical engineering. He has developed devices for use in numerous applications across the medical, industrial and research sectors. He has led multidisciplinary teams on complex projects from which he has gained significant risk and project management experience.
He completed his PhD in Biomedical Engineering from Aston University in 2008 in the field of surgical robotics. He designed and successfully deployed the first ever fully autonomous surgical robot in the operating theatre. Shortly after completing his PhD, Robin accepted a position at Lein Applied Diagnostics where he took the lead in the development of their optical measurement technology. Throughout his time at Lein, he developed significant expertise in the field of optical metrology and developed numerous devices for a wide variety of applications.
In 2009, he was nominated for Design Engineer of the Year in the British Engineering Excellence Awards and was awarded a commendation for his work at Lein which saw the development of their first fully embedded hand-held prototype.
In 2019 he co-founded Occuity with the aim of applying his expertise in novel optical measurement techniques to the medical diagnostics market.
