As the first engineer at Nabsys, a DNA sequencing start-up, Leo served as the Director of Nanofabrication for four years where he oversaw device design, fabrication, testing and outsourcing. His experience and interest in nanotechnology startups led him to co-found Nanotech Consulting, a firm dedicated to helping nanotechnology startups overcome their unique prototyping challenges during the early stages of venture initiation. He served as the Chief Technology Officer.
Following a cross-campus collaboration at UCLA, where he was pursuing an MBA, Leo co- founded Neural Analytics Inc., a medical robotics company developing and commercializing technologies to measure and track brain health. In just five years as CEO, he led development of the Lucid Robotic System (Lucid™ M1 Transcranial Doppler Ultrasound System® and NeuralBot™ System), a robotic assisted ultrasound platform that was recently FDA cleared. This technology integrates ultrasound, robotics and machine learning to assist clinicians to non- invasively monitor a patient's brain blood flow characteristics and provide actionable information to diagnose a variety of neurological disorders.
