Ashish Pattekar

Ashish Pattekar is a Principal Scientist and Research Program Manager at PARC. He is responsible for setting the Xerox Innovation Group's research agenda related to device and hardware innovations in the pursuit of new opportunities for Xerox's Services Business, starting from concept and prototype stage and moving to product roadmaps.

Ashish serves as a Principal Investigator leading a diverse group of hardware and software researchers and a UX designer on two patient engagement projects for Xerox's Healthcare Services Business: hospital patient readmission reduction, and real-time patient feedback in clinical settings using wearable technologies.

Additionally, he is a Principal Investigator leading another group of PARC scientists, engineers, mechanical designers and technical support staff on a U.S. Department of Energy's ARPA-E-funded project developing a novel ionic liquid-based oxygen conducting intermediate-temperature fuel cell that can generate electricity directly from natural gas, without requiring pure hydrogen as fuel.

Since joining PARC in 2005, Ashish has led a variety of R&D projects developing innovative MEMS and medical devices (ballistic transdermal needle-free drug delivery: 'Hypospray'), improving the overall architecture of Xerox's solid-ink jet machines ('Novel SIJ architectures'), Thermal management in high-power LED lighting ('Integrated thermal-optical diffusers'), and Sensor systems for real-time physiological monitoring and other healthcare-related wearable devices for real-time patient engagement and location identification via RFID networks. Prior to PARC, Ashish was Director of Micropower Systems at Nu Element Inc., where he developed fuel cell systems for use on board US Navy aircraft in collaboration with The Boeing Company (Seattle, WA), as part of a project funded by the US Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR).

Dr. Pattekar earned his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from Lehigh University and his B.Tech. in Chemical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT Bombay). He is an inventor on over 60 issued and pending U.S. and international patents (including the first Design Patent that was issued to PARC in 2015), has co-authored 20+ peer-reviewed articles, conference papers and a book chapter, and frequently presents invited talks at technical conferences. Ashish's Doctoral research paper, titled 'A microreactor for hydrogen production in micro-fuel cell applications' that was published in the Feb. 2004 issue of the IEEE Journal of MEMS, was selected by Thomson Reuters ScienceWatch as a 'Fast Moving Fronts' paper in the field of Engineering - recognized for having the highest number of citations in its field.

Aside from his professional interests, Ashish used to spend his spare time running marathons, playing golf, and automating his home with connected devices. These days, he is busy chasing a toddler at home.
