I am a systems engineer in the biotechnology and medical devices industries, with a passion for breaking down complex technical problems into component parts and resolving them. I get an even bigger kick out of anticipating these detailed problems before they arise, and taking steps to resolve or mitigate them.
I earned an MS in physics, with a focus on single-molecule biophysics at the University of Arizona. After graduating, I worked for a medical device company in Tucson, where I was a system integration and verification scientist. After about a year of this, I started learning about and training in a systems engineering role, including top-down design. I learned about design real-time while working on a next-generation product.
After a few years, I completed an M. Eng. in Systems and Industrial Engineering from the University of Arizona, and moved to the Bay Area. I started as a systems engineer at a large biotechnology company here, and oversaw some product integration and product design. I moved to another biotechnology company, where I worked as a manufacturing systems engineer.
In my spare time, I build robots with Legos.
