David M. Mills is a principal scientist with GE Research. He earned a B.S. degree in engineering from LeTourneau University, Longview, TX and a Ph.D. degree in biomedical engineering from Duke University, Durham, NC. In 2000, he joined GE as an ultrasound probes engineer, designing medical ultrasound transducers using PZFlex (now OnScale) FEM simulations for both piezoelectric and cMUT based transducers. Another research interest is in new clinical applications for ultrasound that are enabled by real-time 3D ultrasound imaging, visualization algorithms, and customized user interfaces. Dr. Mills has over 25 issued patents and has authored more than 10 external publications. He is a member of the IEEE.
