Daniel Meckes

Principal Engineer

Daniel was a surgical technician at Johns Hopkins University Hospital in the United States where his interest in medical devices became the inspiration to embark on an engineer career. Immigrating to Australia in 2017, Daniel is Romar’s Principal Engineer and leads the design aspects of Romar’s projects for the medical, defence and aerospace sectors.

A passion for physics and maths that trumped biology

As a surgical technician, it is no surprise that Daniel thought about a career as a medic; however, his passion for physics and mathematics trumped his interest in biology. He saw the opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives through developing medical devices, and his interest in engineering took over.

Daniel worked at Rowan University in New Jersey for several years, designing small heat exchangers to cool the heart, brain and pancreas in patients with inflammatory disorders. After immigrating to Australia in 2017, he worked with a company developing electrophysiology devices to treat heart rhythm disorders. Daniel joined Romar in 2021 with a highly sought-after pedigree in engineering and medical device manufacturing.

A love of engineering and passion for science and discovery

With a career now firmly forged in the engineering sector, Daniel’s love of the discipline and his passion for science and its influence on discovery are providing unique pathways for advanced and additive manufacturing processes. As the Principal Engineer at Romar, Daniel’s quest to defy convention and innovate new techniques and ideas in the manufacturer of medical devices is breaking new ground with each project.

“I’m committed to solving difficult problems and seeing solutions develop from concept to a final product, something that people can use. I enjoy when engineering problems keep me up at night,” he laughs.
