Robert Koch completed his M.E.Sc. in the interdisciplinary Biomedical Engineering program this past August with a completing average of 93%. Robert’s highly innovative thesis describes the invention of a novel simulator that addresses the demand for more refined training methods in hearing healthcare, specifically on probe placement in the ear canal. In recognition of his breakthrough work, Robert not only received the highest provincial and federal scholarships, but he caught the attention of a 3D printing company, Cimetrix Solutions Inc., that awarded him a scholarship for the duration of his master’s research. Two papers that Robert published during the first year of his master’s program, have already gained international attention.
Robert is the President and Founder of AHead Simulations Inc., based here in London, Ontario, a company that provides improved hearing healthcare through advanced simulators.
