My academic, clinical and research experiences in oncology allowed me to develop a deep understanding and appreciation for the intricacies of disease and the steps taken to combat them. I've also learned from my startup and business school coursework, which directly compliments my study of the fields of science and engineering by enabling me to develop scientific ideas and introduce new technology so the public can benefit from them.
My current interests are to work with organizations at the forefront of biological innovation and to learn about groundbreaking practices and solutions offered by research, industry, and academia. My past experiences gave me the tools and confidence to apply myself to new and challenging projects that the leaders of industry offer.
