He previously worked as a mechanical engineer and later as a consultant at two startups: Starry Internet and Chip Diagnostics. At the former, he worked on designing and fabricating prototypes and test equipment for millimeter wave (5G) transmitters and receivers. At the latter, he worked on microfluidic devices for liquid biopsy and the accompanying electromechanical benchtop device.
