MEET THE TEAM
ARA KESHISHIAN, M.D. FACS
FOUNDER & CEO, BIOMEDICAL ENGINEER
Ara is the inventor behind the science and technology that goes into PinpointEyes™. He earned a Bachelors of Science in Biomedical Engineering from The University Of Southern California, and after finishing medical school completed his surgical residency in Michigan. He has a successful private practice in California and over the years has been involved in designing and engineering medical devices, instruments, and processes to varying degrees. Ara is also a father, with first-hand experience involving the limited treatments available for common ocular conditions. His hands-on approach to development has created quality, stylish products that continue to revolutionize non-invasive patient care. Ara believes that this solution-driven technology has the power to drastically improve the lives of patients with strabismus or similar conditions.
Dawn KESHISHIAN, BsN,RN
CO-FOUNDER & CRITICAL CARE NURSE
Dawn has been intimately involved and instrumental in the development of this technology. As a critical care nurse she has bridged the gap between the science and technology and the patient and family experience. She has extensive experience in working with children with varying degree of conditions limited their abilities.
Kai is a PhD candidate in electrical engineering at the University of Southern California (USC) and earned master's degrees in electrical engineering and biomedical engineering from USC. His research focuses on biosensors and bio-compatible acoustic actuators for the non-invasive nerve system stimulation. Kai began his professional career as an analog field application engineer at Texas Instruments focusing on designing healthcare, IoT, and biomedical devices. Kai believes that biomedical science along with artificial intelligence will transform the way of human life in the near future.
