Rob is a listed inventor on over 20 US Patents and is currently the CTO of Tekscan, Inc., the tactile sensor company he co-founded after completing his Master’s degree at MIT. Rob returned to Tekscan in October of 2015 after a twenty year absence during which he was involved in the initial funding, startup and eventual liquidation of several other technology companies. These include game controller and software company Slingshot Game Technology, Inc. and Bluetooth controller companies Zeemote, Inc. (sold to Aplix, Inc. of Japan) and ID-8 Mobile, Inc.

When not working or at MIT, Rob likes to spend time with his family and playing (tennis, softball, skiing).
