Paul VanGilder, Patent Engineer


Paul's background is primarily in biomedical, mechanical, and electrical engineering. During his graduate career at Arizona State, his research was focused on brain-computer interfaces and neuroprosthetics. His thesis work involved using spectral analysis techniques to analyze neural signals during multisensory integration tasks in a virtual reality in non-human primates. Prior to this, he was an engineering designer at a specialized armoring manufacturer developing solutions for US Department of Defense vehicles. Paul also spent time analyzing how knee replacement devices affected biomechanics. As a research assistant he helped develop a surgical navigation probe using Ultra-Wideband radio technology. He has extensive experience in manufacturing processes, signal analysis, MRI and CT applications, medical devices, biology and neuroscience, and novel computer hardware and software applications.
