Expert Witness Code : 3721

Summary:

This Ph.D is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering and the Head of the Biothermal Technology Laboratory at a major University. His research is in the area of thermal sciences, with an emphasis on biomedical engineering. One of the thrust research areas at the Biothermal Technology Laboratory is cryosurgery, which is the destruction of undesired biological tissues by freezing. In order to gain better control over the cryoprocedure-thereby improving the outcome of the cryotreatment he has developed both devices and techniques for cryosurgery. He is currently leading an interdisciplinary research team focusing on improving the outcome of cryosurgery, where recent efforts are directed towards computerized planning of the cryoprocedure and computer-based training of the cryosurgeon.

He has developed a new area of research, combining mathematical modeling and experimental investigation of physical properties in cryogenic temperatures, in order to quantify the effects of thermo-mechanical stress resulting from freezing. Thermo-mechanical stress is one of the key effects in tissue injury, which is associated with both cryosurgery and cryopreservation. When the stress level becomes too high, structural damage occurs in the tissue at various levels, with fracture formation a frequently observed outcome. In cryosurgery, fracture formation may lead to excessive bleeding to the thermally-treated tissue, which may result in clinical complications. In cryopreservation, fracture formation may prevent the preserved tissue from recovering. In either application, fracture can develop at the micro and/or the macro levels.  He is leading an interdisciplinary research team, including experts from the fields of solid mechanics and cryobiology, to develop new models to describe thermal stress in glass-forming biomaterials, where glass formation ( also known as "vitrification" ) is an emerging alternative to classical cryopreservation.

Hetenyi Award from the Society for Experimental Stress Analysis for the most significant research paper published in Experimental Mechanics, Brewer Award from the Society for Experimental Mechanics (SEM),which recognizes an “Outstanding Practicing Stress Analyst” and a Certificate of Recognition from NASA for “the creative development of a technical innovation.”  He was elected as an“Academic Adviser” by the Presidents of the International Academy of Science, Russia “in recognition of the significant scientific achievements in the solution of the engineering problems of mechanics.”  He was one of the pioneers in the use of externally attached small-weight accelerometers for non-invasive, in-vivo measurements of the gait induced impact waves.  The obtained data was used for monitoring the training intensity, understanding the effects of fatigue on the ability of the human musculo-skeletal system to attenuate and dissipate shock waves, to measure the attenuational capacity of the knee joint, to name a few of the applications.  His consulting work led to the development of a range of industrial instruments used for automated analysis of residual stresses in glass products, TV tubes, and compact disks.

This Expert was on a faculty of Iowa State University, Ames, IA (1979-1984) and is currently on faculty of Department of Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics and Bioengineering Program at Lehigh University, where he teaches mechanics and biomechanics graduate and undergraduate courses.  During this period he supervised over 25 visiting scientists and 15 MS and PhD students. He is one of three organizers of an International Workshop on Advances in Experimental Mechanics (participation is by invitation only).  He was elected Full Professor of the Ljubljana University, Ljubljana, Slovenia in 2009.  He served as a consultant and expert witness for several forensics cases dealing with the performance of the micro-electronics devices and injuries due to the vehicle accidents.

Summary:

This Ph.D. has made technical and business contributions since 1987 in the areas of medical devices, imaging, signal processing, consumer electronics, clean-tech, biometric security, and electrical power delivery.  He has worked for industry leaders such as GE and Siemens, as well as several start-ups. He taught electrical engineering at the University of Illinois, and has been consulting for clients in the US and Asia since 2012.

With 22 US patents issued and several pending, he frequently provides IP development and analysis to corporate management and law firms.  Several years of experience on the Patent Committee of a large business has proved helpful in advising on IP strategy and licensing deals.

His engineering experience includes medical device development, and regulatory work preparing FDA CDRH submissions.
