Dr. Patel's expertise lies in biomaterials, biocompatibility, drug/device combination products, and cardiovascular devices. She has experience with infections associated with medical devices, development of drug-eluting endovascular products including stents and vascular grafts, engineering of biomaterial surfaces, and the mechanics of heart valves.

Dr. Patel has over 14 years of hands-on experience in the field of biomedical engineering conducting research at Harvard Medical School, the Cleveland Clinic and Case Western Reserve University, and leading new product development in the medical device industry. Prior to joining Exponent, Dr. Patel was a postdoctoral fellow at Case where she focused on the origin and control of infection related to implantable medical devices. Before that, she was the Senior Scientist at Icon Interventional Systems, a cardiovascular device startup. Dr. Patel has also served as an advisor to a London-based healthcare consulting firm and has conducted technical and marketing assessments for Indian firms on potential opportunities in the medical device sector.
