Ben Park received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University. He was awarded the Dean’s Fellowship in School of Medicine at Stanford University. During the Dean’s Fellowship, he focused his research interests on the application of biomedical engineering in cardiovascular medicine with an emphasis on interventional procedures. In 2005, he founded Fluid Medical (Mountain View, California) to develop an intravascular ultrasound imaging system for minimally invasive cardiac procedures. Fluid Medical was acquired by Volcano Corporation which later became part of Philips. He stayed on as Chief Technologist for three years after acquisition. In 2014, he founded Fingertips Lab (San Francisco, California) with his partner PK Mishra. The primary objective of Fingertips Lab is to provide a device that would help blind children access mobile technologies which are integral to daily modern life. The device would empower blind children by providing an interface that enables access to information easily and safely using smartphones or tablets. In 2016, Fingertips Lab was invited to the K-Startup Grand Challenge and won first prize (Minister Award).
