Andrew Dent
Executive Vice President, Research at Material ConneXion


As Chief Material Scientist at SANDOW and Executive Vice President of Research at Material ConneXion, Dr. Andrew Dent has helped hundreds of brands, launch or improve existing products by connecting them with innovative solutions from around the world. With over 20 years of experience working with both academia and industry leaders, Dr. Dent has adopted a unique way of observing the surrounding world by first looking at what a product is made of, rather than what it looks like and, more so, what it can one day become. He is also a frequent speaker on sustainable and innovative material strategies, having given talks at TEDxGrandRapids and TEDNYC, and he is the co-author of the Material Innovation book series.
