Dave has specific expertise in the design and fabrication of analog and mixed-signal instrumentation systems, signal processing, and data analysis for bioelectronics and ultrasound systems. He has over twelve years of experience designing custom electronic systems for medical, industrial, and research applications. His technical expertise spans analog and mixed-signal circuit design, FPGA, DSP, and microcontroller development, system-level hardware/software integration, experimentation, and data analysis.
Since joining GE Research in 2012, Dave has been the lead hardware designer on multiple projects, including a 128 channel high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) system for NASA space research, a 32 channel parallel current drive Electrical Impedance Spectroscopy imaging system for NIH real-time lung monitoring, instrumentation systems and calibration techniques for multiplexed molecular imaging (MultiOmyx), as well as wearable patient monitoring devices.
Prior to joining GE Research, Dave performed research at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute on the topic of ultrasonic communication techniques, worked in the semiconductor industry at Analog Devices to bring high-speed A/D converter designs to market, and designed safety-critical military hardware systems while at Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory.
