Medical Design and Outsourcing covers the technical advancements in the design, development, and contract manufacturing of the medical device industry. It is a sister site of the medical device business journal MassDevice, which supplies the medtech industry with business news and stories of devices that save lives.

I write research stories about medical breakthroughs, research news, and the occasional business-oriented story for MedicalDesignandOutsourcing.com.

My stories have also been featured in Medical Design and Outsourcing’s print magazine that is published 6 months a year. In the print edition, I write for the section called ‘Product World’ that features some of the latest medical device products from different companies. I have written a few feature pieces as well.
