Research Focus

My research focuses on the repair and recovery of the trauma patient. This encompasses fundamental and clinical aspects of healing, including implant and fracture optimization, biosensors, evaluation of novel hardware and surgical approaches to expedite fracture repair, and innovation and business models in surgical discovery. I have founded multiple companies in sensor, biomedical, and electronics fields. I actively collaborate with basic scientists, clinicians and others to drive mutual research goals.
