My research interests focus on better integrating devices and biomaterials into the body to improve existing therapies while also creating new ways to improve patient care. I have a strong background in biomedical device design, biomaterials characterization, micro/nanofabrication, regulatory affairs and commercialization. I am also passionate about education and love to teach.
My outside interests include spending time with my wife Laura and our dog pepper, kayaking, hiking and playing/watching soccer. Go Real Salt Lake!
