Roshan Shetty

Before co-founding Photothermal Spectroscopy Corp., Roshan Shetty served as co-founder and CEO for Anasys Instruments. Anasys pioneered the field of nanoscale IR Spectroscopy, via photothermal IR (PTIR) technology that uses an AFM probe as the IR absorbance detector. The AFM-PTIR technique was widely adopted by leading academic and industrial researchers. Anasys was acquired by Bruker in April, 2018. Prior to Anasys, he was the Director of Strategic Alliances for Veeco Instruments, where he laid the foundation for the widely successful Quantitative nano-mechanics (QNM) product platform at Veeco/Bruker Nano. The QNM platform revolutionized the field of nano-mechanics and contributed to over $100 Million in cumulative revenues. He conceived of and executed the $13.2 Million Strategic Alliance with Dow Chemical in nano-mechanical characterization that won a $6.6 Million NIST ATP award from a field of 800 corporate applicants. In a former life on another galaxy, Roshan was the co-founder/COO of Alafolie.com, a click/mortar wedding registry based in Paris, Milan and Munich that raised over $20Mill and employed over 100 people with strategic online/offline partnership with Galeries Lafayette.
