Why I'm a JPAL

Patient needs await superior innovations being developed across our field. I want to accelerate realization of external technologies through encouragement, coaching, shaping, and connecting with expertise across the J&J network. Let’s get after it so these solutions can impact the lives of patients and their families.


I am a medical device engineer and biomaterials scientist with 5 years of experience in soft tissue reinforcement with tissue-derived materials and 5 years of experience in orthopedic infection prevention and treatment. I hold a PhD in biomedical engineering from Rutgers University and a BS in mechanical engineering from the University of Illinois.
