Author Biography - Gerhard Swiegers
Gerhard F. Swiegers, PhD, earned his doctorate at the University of Connecticut in 1991 and then worked at the Australian National University and the University of Wollongong, Australia. In 1998, he joined the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO), the major government laboratory in Australia. From 1998 to 2006, he was involved with designing anti-counterfeiting devices for bank notes. In 2005, one of his inventions was commercialized as a spin-off company known as Datatrace DNA Pty Ltd, and in 2006, Dr. Swiegers joined the firm as Vice President, Strategic Research. Several of Dr. Swiegers's inventions are currently used by national governments and major companies around the world.
