“The relationship between efficacy and usability is always important, but especially so in the medical field, where ideas moving from the drawing board to the patient’s bedside must be assessed for patient safety.”

As a practicing surgeon specializing in minimally invasive surgery, Daniel wants to make a positive impact on patient care from beyond the operating room. His fascination in the technology and function of the tools of his trade has prompted an interest in device design and continuous systems improvement. With his degree from MITidm, Daniel doesn’t intend to stop practicing medicine, but rather use his unique perspective as a physician to partner with a urology-focused research collaborative to advance endourology approaches from idea to design to testing to production to patient care. Daniel graduated from Williams College with a Bachelor of Arts in Biology and received his medical degree from the University of Chicago.
