Daniel Meckes


As Romar Engineering’s Principal Engineer, Daniel Meckes leads the design aspects of Romar projects for the medical, defence and aerospace sectors. He joined Romar in November 2021 with longstanding experience in engineering and medical device manufacturing.

“Prior to becoming an engineer, I worked as a surgical technician at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in the United States, and that’s when I developed an interest in medical devices,” he explains.

“I had initially thought of training as a medic, but I found I had a passion for physics and applied mathematics and much preferred them over biology. I saw there was a huge opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives developing medical devices.”

Dan 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 emigrating to Australia in 2017, he worked with a company developing electrophysiology devices to treat heart rhythm disorders.

“I worked in the area of pulsed-field ablation (PFA), developing catheters and the PFA generator.”

Dan is part of Romar’s advanced manufacturing team, which utilises our state-of-the-art additive manufacturing facilities.

“Coming to Romar is like a breath of fresh air. It’s a great team and we have highly skilled junior engineers as well; very sharp young engineers with a lot of potential.

There’s a high level of respect for all of the engineers here,” he adds. “We’re expected to get the work done and we have the autonomy to do that the best way we see fit.”

For Dan, that means designing innovative and effective bespoke engineering solutions for our clients.

“I love engineering and I have a passion for science and discovery. I like 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.
