Statistics Expert Joins Editorial Advisory Board


Finite-element models are becoming increasingly important in the design of medical products, says Deepa Mahajan.

Mathematical models and methods such as finite-element analysis are often part of medical device design, giving engineers tools that provide accurate device predictions. MD&DI welcomes Deepa Mahajan to the editorial advisory board to help us continue to serve our readers in this critical area.

With a PhD in applied mathematics and a minor in statistics, Mahajan is an expert in analyzing efficient finite-element methods. She employs analytical techniques and knowledge of industrial engineering in her role as a senior scientist for the cardiac rhythm management group of Boston Scientific.
At Boston Scientific, Mahajan is responsible for initiation, design, development, and implementation of scientific research projects related to implantable medical devices.
“I am involved in investigating the feasibility of applying scientific principles and concepts to potential medical technologies,” she says.
Mahajan has five patents in various stages of application related to improving therapy delivered to patients by implantable cardiac devices. The goal, she says, is for these therapies to improve the quality of life for cardiac patients.
