As an alumnus of Santa Clara University, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to give back as a member of the Bioengineering advisory board. I have 30 years of biopharma experience at Genentech and 5 years of diagnostics experience at Syva Company. I lead a diverse group that develops and applies functional assays, automation systems, and infrastructure solutions to advance small molecule and large molecular drug discovery programs. I value continued opportunities for learning and thrive on developing systems and workflows that embrace innovation and promote efficiency. I look forward to learning more about the Bioengineering program and working with the students, faculty, staff, and other board members.
