Stacey Barber

Technical Manager


Empirical is my first full time job out of school. In school, I had the opportunity to fill my classes with mechanical engineering classes as I was on track for my biomedical engineering degree. I’ve always been a hands on person and working. I knew I liked mechanical engineering and how it related to the medical field. While working at Empirical, I have had the opportunity to be an active member at ASTM, work on projects to present at various conferences, test to various ISO and ASTM standards and develop testing for custom tests where no standards exist.

Education: Master of Science Biomedical Engineering, University of Southern California | Bachelor of Science Mechanical Engineering and Biomedical Engineering, Worcester Polytechnic Institute

What I love about my job field: I enjoy being an engineer in the medical field because I can use the concepts of math, biology, and physics to help improve the health and well-being of others.

What I enjoy most about my job at Empirical: I love that no day is the same. I get to work with new people and see new devices on a daily basis.

What sets Empirical apart from our competitors: The quality, expertise, reactivity. Everyone at Empirical strives to deliver quality, whether it be in taking a phone call and answering a few questions or delivering their final technical report. Empirical also has a years of industry expertise and has seen many different phases of medical device development over the last few decades. Because Empirical is a small company, we are able to quickly react to a clients request to get them the information they need in a timely manner, and with the utmost quality.
