Dr Voigt, a doctoral graduate from the University of Cambridge, has worked extensively with early-stage companies and entrepreneurial academics in accelerating the commercialisation of innovative products.

“I am proud to lead the team as we push forward to the next exciting phase of the company’s growth. As a team, we are focused on launching our first product, a non-invasive and highly scalable flow and temperature sensor that automates many of the manual aspects of Legionella risk monitoring in building water systems. In parallel, we plan to increase the capacity of our commercial and operational team in response to growing customer interest in our sensor technology,” commented Dr Voigt.

To meet the significant technological demands of the evolving business, co-founder Colin Payne will now take on the responsibility of full-time Chief Technical Officer (CTO). Mr Payne will lead InferSens’ talented team of deep learning neural network and engineering specialists in the development and distribution of its cutting-edge sensing technology.

The leadership team will now take the first product for its technology to market whilst raising capital and further expanding the expert team.
