During his undergraduate and graduate years at Rose-Hulman, Meyers was part of a NASA Lewis Research Center team that helped design and develop the optical system for an experimental package that flew aboard space shuttle Columbia as part of a U.S. Microgravity Laboratory mission. He also conducted research in the field of medical imaging as a graduate student in the medical biophysics program at the Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis from 1994-95.
At Baker & Daniels, Meyers concentrates his legal practice on protecting intellectual property assets, primarily in the mechanical, electrical, optical and software related arts. He focuses on the preparation and prosecution of patent applications and client consultation. Additionally, Meyers has experience in the licensing of intellectual property assets and assisting clients in product design.
Before entering the patent profession, Meyers gained engineering experience with a mechanical engineering design firm which he co-founded and co-owned for almost five years.
