Luisa Meyer is a patent engineer with Foley & Lardner LLP. She is a member of the firm’s Mechanical & Electromechanical Technologies Practice. She has patent prosecution experience in numerous fields of technology including medical devices, aviation, automotive technologies, power generation systems and plumbing fixtures.
Prior to joining Foley, Luisa worked as a lab supervisor and quality engineer in the lithium-ion battery industry, focused in the areas of research, product management, business development and regulatory compliance. She also has experience in quantitative research and analysis from graduate work in the field of bone and joint biomechanics.
Luisa earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Biomedical Engineering, and her Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin – Madison (B.S., 2011; M.S., 2012; Ph.D., 2016). Her graduate research focused on characterizing and predicting trabecular bone remodeling, and included both ex vivo studies and computational modeling.
