About the Author

Joshua Windmiller

Joshua Windmiller

As a young PhD student in Electrical Engineering at UC San Diego, Joshua Windmiller found himself coping with the doldrums of academic life. “I was disenchanted with publishing research manuscripts only to witness my innovations disappear into oblivion. As an engineer, my feeling of self-worth emanates from my long-standing desire to build things that touch the lives of all those around me.” After completing his PhD degree and a year-long postdoctoral stint at the Laboratory for NanoBioElectronics, Windmiller decided to change course and yield to his entrepreneurial spirit. He founded Electrozyme LLC (La Jolla, CA), an early-stage startup focused on the development of novel wearable biosensor paradigms for applications in the sport, fitness, healthcare, and security monitoring domains.
