David is deeply passionate about preventing a global energy crisis by fixing arguably the main bottleneck preventing a transition to a sustainable energy infrastructure - better energy storage solutions. David is the founder and COO of Holy Grail (YC S19).
David holds a Masters's in chemical engineering and environmental engineering specializing in nanotechnology. He is a PhD candidate in 3D printing of metal nanomaterials for printed electronics applications. In his research he discovered an ultra-low energy and oxidation-free process in an air environment to 3d print and anneal copper nanoparticles onto a variety of flexible and heat-sensitive materials at a resolution invisible to the naked eye (<20µm).
David’s previous experience spans from drilling for deep-sea oil & gas, building decentralized electricity and cooking facilities in Nepal to researching the impact of global warming on Seychellois coral reefs.
