I’m a biomedical engineer with more than three years of hands-on experience performing laboratory work. Highly self-disciplined with the ability to prioritize tasks but also able to change directions and remain flexible. I have demonstrated proficiency in collaborating with and providing guidance to team members and presenting data clearly and in a readily usable format. My area of expertise related to searching methods for optimizing data acquisition and analytics, information and workflow in R & D clinical trials, human subject research and animal surgeries.
