Why I'm a JPAL

Very interested in seeing great ideas come to fruition.


I have 25 years of experience in Medical Device R&D spanning front-end technology development, detailed design and development, and manufacturing process design and scale up. The therapeutic areas I have experience in include general surgery, surgical oncology, thoracic surgery, orthopedics & spine surgery, plastic surgery, etc. and I have 60+ issued patents for device applications in this space. Currently, I am the Head of R&D for J&J Medical Devices China, based in Shanghai.

Fun fact:

I have lived in 13 different cities and always manage to find a community choir to sing in. Currently, I am part of an "expat" Choir in Shanghai, China.
