Unitive Design

Phil Marsden received his MPhys degree from the University of Southampton in 1997 and PhD in 2001 from the Optoelectronics Research Centre, Southampton for work on electron spin relaxation in III-V semiconductors. With an interest in quantum information, he moved to KTH Stockholm to work on entangled photon pair production in PPKTP. A subsequent move to the University of Toronto in 2003 meant a return to solid state physics, investigating ultrafast spin switching in GaAs using all-optical coherent-control techniques.

He moved into the commercial world in 2005, initially developing imagers for the motion picture industry, subsequently in MedTech, with the emergence of high-performance CMOS sensors at PerkinElmer.

Phil is hugely motivated by bridging the gap between academia, industry and the clinicians who are the end users. In 2014 he founded his own company, Unitive Design and Analysis Ltd, to provide specialist imaging and sensing know-how to the MedTech and BioTech sectors. Now a government-grant-awarded company, Unitive Design and Analysis specialises in imaging in oncology, in-vivo and spectral imaging in molecular biology.

Phil is a long time member of the IOP and the IEEE and a tireless advocate of the capability of physics to push the boundaries of diagnostics and healthcare.
