Caltech E/ME105


Product design for the developing world

In 2007 and 2008 I traveled to Guatemala with the Caltech and Universidad Rafael Landivar students participating in Professor Ken Pickar’s E/ME105 course.

In 2009 I proposed a project to improve health care, by exploring applications of an inexpensive webcam-based fluorescent microscope that my company, Etaluma, is developing.
