I am a biomedical engineer with expertise in developing electromechanical systems and medical devices for minimally invasive image-guided interventional therapy. I perform basic and preclinical research to develop solutions that will provide physicians access and the ability to deliver therapy to tumors and pre-cancerous conditions in the genitourinary, gastrointestinal and pulmonary tracts.
I have an established track record of developing innovative image-guided robotic systems that provide easy access and a high degree of control to the physician performing the procedure. This includes a steering system for the remote control of catheters while performing endovascular procedures and an MRI safe robot for performing targeted prostate biopsies, developed in collaboration with the URobotics Lab at Johns Hopkins University. I have also developed novel medical devices, such as specially designed lumen specific electrode-catheters.
