What’s important about your research—and where do you hope to take it?

I am developing a real-time feedback control system for high-precision, ultra-short-pulsed laser surgery of the spine. Having the ability to distinguish between bone and different soft tissues during a neurosurgery procedure has the potential to significantly reduce the risk of nerve damage, overall surgery time and time the patient is under anesthesia.

What are you most passionate about in your work?

Developing medical technologies that will create a more efficient and affordable means of diagnosing and treating high-risk diseases in the clinic.

How will the Business Development Fellows program help you to change the world?

Being an entrepreneur requires a different skill set than that developed in the lab. This program will help me develop the business acumen and entrepreneurial skills to thoroughly investigate the commercialization potential of my research endeavors.
