EDUCATION
MSc Mechanical Engineering, specialised in biomedical and micro systems engineering; Microfluidics expert; concept to commercialisation

 

ABOUT
I have a passion for developing smart devices. In the past I have successfully delivered medical devices from concept to commercialisation. One product on the market is Alere™ HeartCheck where I was responsible for the development of the disposable device. I was also responsible for the system integration of new disposable, new reader, new manufacturing line to support the modified assay chemistry. Design for manufacture starts with a design that needs to be right from early on.
