BS, Biological Sciences
At UCI, I was involved in immunology research and upon graduation, my interests in molecular biology led me to Zymo Research, a small biotech. I began work as a Research Associate and did extensive R&D and brought to market 10 different nucleic acid extraction kits. Following that, I was promoted to High Throughput Automation Product Manager and lead an R&D team as the primary expert on lab robotics and liquid handlers. This position mainly involves developing new product strategy and roadmap, marketing, ongoing care of current product lines, among others.
