He completed a postdoctoral research fellowship at Cambridge University focusing on Chemical Reaction Engineering, as well as a one year fellowship at The National University of Ireland, Dublin. While at Yale, Peter was Captain of the Yale Rugby Club. Originally, he was drawn to this field because he was interested in mathematics, chemistry, and making things work. Peter hails from County Kerry in Ireland, and following his studies at Yale, he was offered a position at DuPont where he initially focused on research, then shifted into management, and eventually to business. When he was younger, Peter was quite a serious rugby player and still follows the sport today. In his leisure time, he enjoys traveling and spending time with family and his grandkids. Peter has two children who are both lawyers, one in California, one in Australia. He and his wife enjoy traveling to visit them, as well as their family in Ireland.
