About Us

Jplus Consulting was formed in 2009 by Dr Peter King and Professor Marcel Maeder to develop and commercialise novel global data analysis software products for research applications in chemistry and biochemistry.


  Peter King                                               Marcel Maeder

Professor Maeder is currently a Professor at the Department of Chemistry, University of Newcastle, NSW, Australia. A specialist in chemometrics and in particular hard modelling methods, Professor Maeder has developed unique insights and numerical approaches for the global analysis of multivariate spectrophotometric data in order to characterise chemical reaction mechanisms and determine the key reaction parameters. He is co-author of the textbook ‘Practical Data Analysis in Chemistry’ Elsevier 2007.

Dr Peter King has a Ph.D from the University of Bristol, UK specialising in physical biochemistry and reaction kinetics. He moved into industry developing software for analytical instrumentation  and collaborated with Professor Maeder for more than 20 years, co-developing global analysis applications to fully exploit the information rich data produced by modern analytical instruments. He has extensive technology commercialisation and R&D management experience in the scientific instrumentation, software development and biotechnology sectors gained in the UK and Australia.
