I am a passionate and dedicated researcher with expertise in protein biochemistry and information technology. My training as an engineer and my tenacity to find solutions to problems align perfectly with my goal to improve the quality of human life through better and affordable drugs and healthcare. My experience as a software professional has allowed me to work with multiple teams and successfully develop & support enterprise level applications in a variety of programming languages. My skills as a quick learner, detailed oriented nature and ability to engage with large teams was highlighted by company-wide recognition for excellence in our project executions and client satisfaction. In my doctoral research, I developed highly reliable methods to improve protein stability (manuscripts in preparation). I have thrived on harnessing my engineering background and excellent communication skills in the discovery process and award-winning scientific presentations. I have demonstrated my project management skills in and outside the lab, with contributions to lab operations (managing resources for >20 person lab), recognition for mentoring undergraduate students (>800 students taught, with nominations for teaching excellence) and setting up successful interdisciplinary collaborations on research projects. The convergence of my passion, training and skills lies in an industrial setting, where I believe my expertise and enthusiasm will lead me to make an impact in healthcare through unwavering dedication and synergy. I care deeply about science education, play the drums, and enjoy travelling & the outdoors.
