Eric  Ervin,  PhD — President and CEOEric Ervin, PhD — President and CEO

Dr. Ervin holds a Ph.D. in analytical chemistry from the University of Utah. He specializes in nanopore sensor platform development, electrophysiological measurements, and single molecule sensing. In addition to being one of the inventors on the patents covering the glass nanopore membranes (GNMs), which are the basis for the EBS low noise NanoPatchTM measurement system, he is also the inventor on many issued and pending patents related directly to various other nanopore based sensor platforms and uses thereof. In addition, Dr. Ervin maintains a strong publication record, highlighting EBS’s commitment to the scientific dissemination of our technology and results.


Eric Duff, MBA - VP of Business DevelopmentEric Duff, MBA — Vice President of Business Development

Before joining EBS, Mr. Duff was Director of Business Development for InVision Technologies, where he was charged with leveraging the success of Fortune Magazine's #1 Fastest Growing Company into a sustainable diversified entity. He joined EBS after InVision was acquired by GE Security and applies his experience with technology/commercialization partnerships to bring EBS technologies to market. He received an MBA from Oxford University, and also holds an MS in Engineering Physics from the University of California at San Diego and a BS in Physics from Harvard University.


Andrew Hibbs, PhD — FounderAndrew Hibbs, PhD — Founder

Our late founder, Dr. Andrew “Andy” Hibbs, was a leading scientist and industrialist in the low frequency electromagnetic sensing community. He was one of the founders of Quantum Magnetics, a pioneer in aviation security technologies, which was acquired by InVision Technologies in 1998. Just prior to this acquisition, he founded Quantum Applied Science and Research (QUASAR) to develop bioelectric sensing systems. More recently, he founded QUASAR’s sister companies QUASAR Federal Systems, EBS, and GroundMetrics, Inc. in order to expand the development of low noise sensors into additional fields. Dr. Hibbs was awarded a PhD in Physics from Cambridge University, and was the author of numerous publications and listed inventor on many issued and pending patents.
