About me

As a tech entrepreneur, product innovator, strategist and problem-solver, I am interested in the R&D, Product & Strategy Lead roles. I have also founded the Digital Health Virtual Reality startup Immersive Rehab (http://immersiverehab.com) myself and have created interactive physical & neuro-rehabilitation programs in VR to improve the outcome for patients. I love building products that make a difference and define the strategy going forward. With my strong entrepreneurial, engineering/academic & product development background, I have lots of experience in digital and physical product development & management, strategic foresight and planning, social impact projects, product innovation, international development, cutting-edge research & prototyping, experimentation and user research (UX/UI), business development, in dealing with senior stakeholders, healthcare professionals, patients, & in setting up corporate & academic partnerships. I am keen to continue to drive innovation and make an impact on a daily basis, going from human-centered design thinking to product prototyping.
