Dr. Fridman- Physics/Engineering Academic and SBIR Grant Writer and Consultant
Dr. Fridman is a physics and commercialization expert with 7 years of experience at a multidisciplinary R&D firm supported largely by SBIR/STTR grants. He has authored Phase I & II SBIR proposals to DoD, NSF and NIH, and was lead author of successful proposals that received over $2M in funding. He has a record of innovation (2 granted patents, 2 pending) and scientific publications across an array of disciplines including electromagnetic sensing, quantum materials, human performance/human factors and education technology. He has an acute knowledge of the R&D lifecycle, and an ability to craft clear and coherent messaging to technical and non-technical customers.
He has worked as Research Scientist on numerous projects, served as Principal Investigator on DoD Phase I and NSF Phase I & II SBIR grants, and participated in the NSF I-Corps commercialization boot camp. He has worked with and led diverse scientific and engineering teams from project conception to execution and into commercialization. He has also worked as a consultant to advise firms on intellectual property strategy, strategic partnerships, business development and research planning. Dr. Fridman holds a BS in Physics from the University of Maryland at College Park, and a PhD in Physics from the University of Toronto.
Dr. Fridman specializes in the following aspects of R&D grant applications:
- Performing an initial analysis of the funding opportunity and technical feasibility; conducting background research to identify technical and market fit
- Authoring a compelling pitch that captures the team’s vision
- Structuring a statement of work and test plan that meets the sponsor’s requirements
- Authoring a comprehensive commercialization plan
- Managing the proposal process, coordinating sub-awards and letters of support
- Assisting with intellectual property strategy, drafting provisional patents and patent applications, conducing patentability analyses and drafting responses to office actions.
- Advising start-ups and entrepreneurs, including technical feasibility analysis, finding product/market fit and investor marketing.
- Engineering: analog circuit design, power and data acquisition electronics, semiconductors, robotics and unmanned vehicles (UAS, UGV), advanced and additive manufacturing
- Sciences: physics, quantum materials, nanotechnology, electromagnetic sensing (atmospheric, underground, human body), electrophysiology (EEG, ECG), physiological monitoring, human factors engineering
- Product design: wearable devices, wireless networking, educational technologies, consumer electronics
