The Tueo Team
Bronwyn Harris, MD, MS, is a board certified pediatrician and completed her pediatric cardiology training at Stanford University. As a physician with a background in biomedical engineering she is well equipped to facilitate interactions and promote synergy between engineers and physicians. Her research has focused on cardiology -- in particular, ventricular assist devices for children -- designing a stent for patent ductus arteriosus, and studies regarding accuracy of pulse oximetry in children with cyanotic heart disease.
Todd Murphy, MS is a mechanical engineer with medical device development and manufacturing experience. As a graduate student at Johns Hopkins he helped develop algorithms for objective surgical skill evaluation as a means for enhancing skill development and improved surgical outcomes. Thereafter, he developed catheter products for peripheral artery disease and stroke before designing instruments for a robotic, minimally invasive surgical system at Intuitive Surgical. He then worked in Myanmar where he was responsible for the development of a world-class operation to manufacture low-cost, high-quality products for rural farmers at a leading social enterprise.
Michael Carchia, MD MS, is an experienced computer scientist and electrical engineer with an additional background in medicine. He spent the first nine years of his career with the fabless semiconductor tools company Tensilica, helping to develop and sell the technology that is now at the heart of over two billion electronic devices world-wide. In addition, he has experience developing consumer electronics, having founded a company that builds and sells home sous-vide equipment. Since his transition to healthcare technology, Michael has provided healthcare technology consulting services for companies like Apple and in academia. As part of the of the Shoichet lab at UCSF, Michael enhanced the DOCK drug discovery platform enhancing its capabilities by a factor of five-fold.
William Kethman, MD is a Surgical resident at Stanford University focusing on medical technology innovation. Before medical school he worked at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago on neuroprosthetic technologies focused on the mechanical design efforts. Prior to starting surgical residency, he founded Novate Medical Technologies, a medical device development company focused on addressing global health challenges. The first product, InfaClip, simultaneously cuts and clamps the umbilical cord while reducing blood borne pathogen exposure during the birthing process.
Maarten De Vos, PhD is a biomedical signal processing engineer and Associate Professor at the Oxford Institute of Biomedical Engineering who is assisting with our signal processing and algorithm development efforts. His expertise includes the use of advanced signal processing and machine learning techniques to provide automated decisions support systems for patient monitoring.
Frank Wang, PhD is an electrical engineer and computer scientist with expertise in analog and digital circuit design. During his doctoral studies, he developed a solution for detecting localized tissue edema and pressure induced tissue damage that may lead to the formation a pressure ulcer. He worked closely with Bruin Biometrics in bringing this solution to the market. The product, called the SEM Scanner, recently received CE mark as Class IIA medical device. In addition, he has co-founded a health IT company, Vynca, which focuses on the transmission of Physician Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment (POLST) forms across various healthcare settings.
