Full Bio

David Giltner has spent more than twenty years developing cutting-edge photonics technologies into commercial products in the fields of optical communications, remote sensing, directed energy, and scientific instrumentation. In 2017 he started TurningScience to provide training and support for scientists of all disciplines seeking to enter the private sector as employees, collaborators, or entrepreneurs.

David has developed the unique ability to function well in both highly technical and business circles and has often functioned as an interpreter to help these two worlds communicate more productively.  He now uses this skill to help scientists understand the private sector so they can design and build their own rewarding careers.
