Mark Bloore has done software design and development in many areas over the past 30+ years, from electromagnetic prospecting equipment (University of Toronto Geophysics Lab) to typesetting (MacTeX from FTL Systems) to distributed computing control to highly-parallel web crawling (both at to iOS apps (AllSeeingEye for iPad). In addition to software, he has a background in general science, with a particular taste for physics and biology. Mark can not only design, direct, and implement the many and varied software systems, databases, and user interfaces TellSpec requires, but can also contribute to the hardware design, with a good understanding of how it operates as a spectrometer and a wireless device, and of how it interacts with the software on both smartphone and server.
