Inventor

Josh has produced over 10 patents ranging from new methods of manufacturing nanofibers to human stem cell-based devices for drug development. Josh has showcased these technologies to government agencies such as DARPA, NIH, DTRA, US Army, and FDA, as well as to private companies like GSK, Abbot, Sanofi, Nike, and Reebok.

Engineer

Using the engineering design process, Josh had made bioreactors, nanofiber spinning machines, microfluidic devices, and machines that mimic brain trauma. With a focus on biomedical device design, Josh uses the latest techniques in rapid prototyping, microfluidics, and nanofabrication to help solve emergent health issues.

Scientist

Josh is an author of 11 scientific publications in peer-reviewed journals such as Lab on a Chip, PNAS, Biomaterials, and Nano Letters. Josh has developed new techniques for in Vitro neuron culture to better understand Traumatic Brain Injury and has performed validation studies on human stem cell assays for the pharmaceutical industry.
