Ashish Pattekar's research interests include MEMS, microfluidics, and thermal and systems engineering, especially in applying these to a variety of areas such as printing systems and alternative energy technologies. His earlier work included developing fuel-cell based energy systems for portable and auxiliary power applications.
A member of PARC's core team researching next-generation printing systems for Xerox, Ashish has also successfully co-led a cross-organizational effort in developing future fusing systems for their flagship iGEN product. Before joining PARC, Ashish worked as the Director of Micropower Systems at Nu Element Inc., in Seattle, Washington, where he consulted on projects for the Boeing Company, and also developed reformer-based fuel cell systems for powering onboard electronics in aircraft applications.
Dr. Pattekar earned his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from Lehigh University and his B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT Bombay). He is an inventor on over 25 U.S. and international patents.
