Health Technologist and Entrepreneur
I design health and wellness products. I received a Ph.D. from the University of Virginia creating wireless technologies to assess the health of those living with movement disorders such as Parkinson's and essential tremor. My work resulted in new clinical innovations, 16 publications, and coverage in Computer magazine, Healthcare IT News, and Medgadget. I currently lead technology and product development at a venture-backed startup, BeClose, which I co-founded in 2009. Our service promotes safety and wellness for older or disabled individuals seeking to live independently. We have been featured in TechCrunch, The New York Times, NPR, USA Today, ABC News, NBC News, and Money Magazine. I enjoy meeting people with similar interests and projects, so feel free to contact me if you wish to share ideas.
