Coming from a strong scientific, medical, and broad educational background, I have applied myself as a professional expert and problem solver. I have been quoted with the statement, “Doctors have all the questions and none of the answers. Engineers have all the answers but don't know the questions”. Throughout my education, I continuously sought to enhance beyond my immediate field of study in order to better address the perspective that can only be appreciated from exposure to other disciplines. Although my academic major at MIT was in Biology, I took courses in Mechanical Engineering, Material Science, and Architecture and also completed several courses at Harvard Medical School concurrently. I graduated with an equal familiarity of fabricating precise titanium or steel components in a machine shop using a lathe or milling machine, as I was under a microscope counting colonies on a petri dish.
