Research

The image above shows an expanding endovascular stent on a catheter. Stents are inserted inside partially blocked coronary arteries and are expanded, where they remain as permanent scaffolds. One area of my research is in the fusion of electrical, computer, and mechanical engineering to build smart catheters with embedded instrumentation that allow these devices to be implanted with more precision and result in fewer patient complications.

I maintain an active interest in digital signal processing, seismic communication, handheld instrumentation, entrepreneurship, endvascular stenting, and mechatronics especially as applied to robotic solutions for pest control. I have experience consulting in the fields of electronic instrumentation and robotics, and I have experience in patent and civil litigation involving both endovascular stents and electronic instrumentation.
