Ben savors the collaboration that biomedical engineering offers as every project brings together physicians, patients, designers and engineers to solve complex problems. Ben’s background includes three years at AtriCure, where he worked on cryogenic surgical devices for cardiac surgery. During his time there, Ben learned the importance of understanding the end user before designing products. Ben strives to implement patient-centric design – that is, “bedside-to-bench-to-bedside” – in all of his work. In his spare time, Ben enjoys Cincinnati’s breweries with friends and hammering on steel as a novice blacksmith.
