Dr. Peter Hollender
Principal Ultrasonic Engineer
Peter has worked in ultrasound research and development since 2009. After completing his doctorate in biomedical engineering at Duke University, he has worked across a range of disciplines within the ultrasound field, from developing cutting-edge imaging modalities to push the performance of top-of-the-line radiological systems to new heights to designing and building low-cost, point-of-care ultrasound systems from the ground up. Prior to joining OpenWater, Peter founded and grew MicroElastic Ultrasound Systems, a startup that developed novel ultrasound diagnostic devices for dermatologists and researchers. His expertise includes multidimensional signal processing and system design, grant writing and medical device commercialization, and he has taken multiple technologies from conception through proof-of-concept and into numerous pre-clinical and clinical studies with academic and commercial partners.
