Wireless power @ Resonant Link | Activate Fellow

How does this work?

Scientist, product manager, engineer, and founder. At Resonant Link, we are building breakthrough wireless power systems to untether batteries to electrify work and transportation. This includes wireless power for implantable medical devices, consumer electronics, mobile robotics, drones, and electric vehicles. At Stanford, researched and published >30 papers on next-generation power electronics, including wide-bandgap semiconductors, motor drives, and renewable integration. At Motiv, led the company’s only product, a modular all-electric powertrain for commercial vehicles, from first prototype through commercialization, with the product driving over 1 million customer miles. Multiple awards, including Activate / Cyclotron Road Fellow, Forbes 30 Under 30 (2020), Nasa iTech Energy Winner, and more.
