Company: Callaghan Innovation


Personal Profile:
I am a scientist and team leader at Callaghan Innovation. I specialise in product innovation, product development and commercialisation. My expertise is in protein science and engineering with a focus on medical device development, and skin and wound care products. My work experience spans across pharmacy, drug discovery, medical devices and biotechnology. Companies that I have worked for include Purdue Pharma (NY, USA), Roche Molecular Systems (NJ, USA), Lundbeck Research Ltd (NJ, USA), and Aroa Biosurgery (NZ). Over the last 2 years, I have been the Chief Technical Officer (via secondment) for Hi-Aspect Limited; a biotechnology start-up. In this role, I led the commercialisation of a technical product and c reative processes underpinning the products design, development and execution. Bringing technologies from the lab into market is where my passion lies and what I enjoy the most about the work I do. With hard work and good collaborations anything is possible.
