I worked as a research and development engineer and conducted my Masters thesis on a new device for osteoarthritis patients
At Abbott Vascular I worked on a drug eluting stent, a stem cell delivery catheter and test method development for FDA filings
At Mednova I worked on a carotid embolic protection system to capture and retrieve emboli dislodged during carotid stenting
