Mark has drafted and prosecuted numerous patent applications for a variety of medical imaging and monitoring technologies, including computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems, x-ray systems, positron emission tomography (PET), and electrocardiogram (ECG) monitoring. Mark has also worked in a wide range of other technologies, including compressed air energy storage, plug-in hybrid vehicle systems, smart controls for electric motors, semiconductor fabrication, micro-electronics packaging, and turbine engines, to name a few.
His background in physics allows him to address technological fields that touch on the fundamentals of physics from a hardware and/or algorithm perspective. Mark finds being exposed to new technologies exciting and challenging. Specifically, he enjoys wearing two hats: one as a student who learns from inventors, and one as a teacher who translates their inventions into patent literature.
These interests extend into his free time, during which he enjoys fixing things, making things, and writing things.
