A Ph.D. Materials Scientist and Engineer with diverse and extensive research and development experience in the fields of 3D-Printing Material Design and Development, Tissue Engineering, Metallurgy, and Medicine. I have spent the last four years developing, characterizing, and applying new 3D-printable material systems derived from everything from biological extra cellular matrix and living cells to metals, functional ceramics, and graphene with applications ranging from the fields of tissue engineering and reproductive medicine to energy systems and aerospace. I give particular attention to the scale-up potential and ease of translation of the material systems and methods. I have extensive experience working hand-in-hand with materials scientists in traditional fields, as well as with practicing medical clinicians and surgeons in fields including but not limited to obstetrics and gynecology, plastic surgery, orthopedic surgery, pediatric surgery, and organ transplant surgery. Extensive research and development experience is supplemented with experience in intellectual property creation and strategy, management and business training, as well as classroom and laboratory teaching and mentoring.
