Ph.D. 2012, Chemical Engineering, University of Colorado Boulder

Principal Scientist | Sana Biotechnology

Current city: Seattle, WA

My career path: To date, I’ve worked in a variety of functions in the biopharmaceutical industry, including process validation and tech transfer for pharmaceutical compounding/fill/finish, downstream purification process engineering, and for the past 7 years, cell therapy process development.  I recently moved to the Emerald City and I’ve enjoyed getting to experience all that the Pacific Northwest has to offer. 

My interest in being an RNA: CU prepared me well for the wide range of engineering work I’ve done since finishing up my graduate work. Over the years since I finished my formal education, I’ve come to appreciate how crucial networking is when it comes to finding opportunities to use that education. I look forward to interfacing with CU alumni here in the Seattle area, and hope to help others as my network has helped me.
