Nicholas is an accomplished product designer in the fields of medical devices, robotics, wearables, microfluidics, and semiconductor manufacturing tools. As one of the first members of the Advanced Technology Team at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University, Nicholas translated academic research projects into usable products, resulting in a medical device startup and multimillion dollar license deals with large multinational corporations. Nicholas tailored a systems engineering process to the needs of the medical device group at the Wyss, pushing the medical devices group to bring more technologies to license than any other group within the organization. Additionally, Nicholas was principal investigator for four human studies investigating the effects of Stochastic Resonance on balance and performance metrics, resulting in an award winning article in the Journal of Biomechanics. Prior to the Wyss, Nicholas developed robotics and metrology equipment for semiconductor manufacturing tools with extreme operating requirements such as megavolt biases, high-vacuum environments, and 24/7 operation. Additionally, Nicholas helped to build the reliability department at Varian Semiconductor, resulting in a doubling of mean time between interrupts over the term of his involvement with the group. Nicholas holds a Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Systems Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
