ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 13, 2022--

LocatorX, an innovative tracking technology provider, today announced that Andrew Briggs has been appointed Chief Innovation Officer. Briggs will focus on leveraging technologies such as nanochips and artificial intelligence to improve supply chain traceability.

Briggs brings decades of expertise to the role.

His current work focuses on materials and techniques for quantum technologies and their incorporation into practical devices. In addition to his groundbreaking research, Briggs has contributed his expertise to leading global companies including Hitachi and Hewlett-Packard.

Briggs is Emeritus Professor of Nanomaterials at the University of Oxford, where he was elected in 2002 to the newly created Chair of Nanomaterials.

LocatorX has exclusive global rights to commercialize the clock through 2032.

Briggs’ work is recognized in both the academic and business circles. He has amassed over 650 publications and more than 27,500 citations throughout his career, and he was elected an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Microscopial Society for his innovations.
