"I am both a licensed professional engineer and a physician. The goal of my work is to improve human health through the application of engineering analysis. My background spans industry and academia, and my experience includes medical device and biotechnology product development, clinical trials, and intellectual property. I engage students in product design for medicine. I develop hands-on clinical immersion experiences so that students can use chemical engineering, biomedical engineering, and mathematical modeling to identify unmet clinical needs; predict human disease patterns; and prevent, treat, and cure illness. In turn, I use examples from clinical medicine, drug delivery, and biomaterials in my teaching, to illustrate concepts of thermodynamics, kinetics, and transport phenomena. I believe that an engineer's work must be motivated by societal benefit, and therefore I am motivated by stopping the world's leading killers."
