An engineer and entrepreneur, David Borkholder is the Bausch and Lomb Professor of Microsystems Engineering at RIT. His research spans biosensors, MEMs, medical devices, and therapies for auditory dysfunction. His work on soldier borne blast dosimetry systems resulted in fielding of the Blast Gauge technology in Afghanistan, providing a new capability in the battle against traumatic brain injury. This sensor system is now produced by BlackBox Biometrics; a company he founded and where he serves as the Chief Technology Officer. Prof Borkholder also co-founded Heart Health Intelligence, a spin-out company from his laboratory which is commercializing technologies for non-invasive cardiovascular assessment.

Prior to joining RIT, David served as the Director of Hardware Engineering at ZONARE Medical Systems, and the Director of Electronic Systems at Cepheid. He was a member of the DARPA Defense Sciences Research Council (DSRC) and former Chair of the NIH Bioengineering of Neuroscience, Vision, and Low Vision Technologies (BNVT) study section. David is an avid scuba diver, huntsman, and malt fermentation specialist.
