Longer bio: Sam Samdani, PhD, is a Senior Expert at McKinsey’s Chemicals & Agriculture Practice where his responsibilities include leading the specialty chemicals service line in the Americas and bringing thought leadership across a range of complex knowledge domains to clients active in the various segments of advanced materials and downstream/specialty chemicals markets. He also enjoys the privilege of helping clients reset their all-too-human intuitions about value curation – not just value creation – opportunities by combining a select few disruptive technologies at the intersections of the worlds of bits and atoms, e.g., 3D printing, internet of things, nanostructured materials, next-gen genomics, and data-driven advanced analytics and algorithms for machine learning. Prior to joining McKinsey in 1995, Sam worked at McGraw-Hill as an Associate Editor with Chemical Engineering, a monthly technical publication covering developments in chemical and allied process technologies and government regulatory affairs. He received his BS in chemical engineering from Yale University, and his PhD in chemical engineering from the University of Rochester
