Leslie Field, Ph.D., Founder and CEO
Dr. Leslie Field founded the MEMS Insight consulting firm in January 2002. A few years later Dr. Field Founded and is the Managing Member of SmallTech Consulting, LLC, which has an interdisciplinary team of 18 consultants, most at the Ph.D. level, with specializations including MEMS, Microfluidics, Optics, Nanotech, Materials, Physics, Chemistry, EE, Chem E, Proteomics, IP, Due Diligence and Management.
Through both MEMS Insight and SmallTech Consulting, Dr. Field continues to provide consulting services to a broad spectrum
of companies for technical and strategic projects. Much of
her current and recent work involves invention and development of MEMS
devices and systems for medical applications.
She also serves as a Consulting Professor in Electrical Engineering at
Stanford University, where she teaches a graduate-level seminar course
in "Engineering and Climate Change", and she founded and runs Ice911
Research Corporation, an environmental non-profit.
Dr. Field worked in MEMS R&D at Hewlett-Packard Laboratories/Agilent
Laboratories and during her decade there played a key role in starting
HP Labs' Micromechanics group, while also working on a variety of MEMS
projects and devices.
Her earlier work at Chevron Research Company resulted in improved
commercial catalytic refining methods for high-octane blend-stocks and
Leslie earned PhD and MS degrees in Electrical Engineering from UC
Berkeley's Sensor & Actuator Center, and MS and BS degrees in
Chemical Engineering from MIT. She has 42 issued US patents, 17 pending
patent applications and 18 technical publications to her credit. She
serves on professional technical and awards committees and does
volunteer work in education.
