I started my career with experiences in different engineering industries and my first publication as an undergraduate was on computational improvement related to aircraft wing design. Motivated by a genetics teacher, I subsequently spent over two decades with R&D activities in biotechnology. Through my career I took innovative approaches to solve difficult problems and achieved consistent success that lead to pioneering contributions that include creatively combining bioprocess technology and biology; contributions seminal to the field of host-pathogen interactions; and improving tools and technologies.
