    PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

     

    INTELLECTUAL VENTURES LABORATORY, Bellevue, Washington, USA ·2010 – 2014

    Director of Engineering

    Led a department of 45 mechanical, electrical, and software engineers to solve complex & ambiguous global health challenges at a rapidly growing technology incubator. Managed technically diverse projects with $10M/year budget. Recruited and hired new talent, led business development and process improvement efforts, worked directly with customers to understand their evolving needs, and participated in the intellectual property committee overseeing submissions from scientists and engineers.

     

    ·         Played an integral role in the laboratory’s growth over 4 years, tripled both the number of employees and revenues, and led business development efforts.

    ·         Developed new processes and led change management efforts: created and implemented an innovation process leading to generation of 30+ ideas over its first year, introduced project management methods and implemented its use on every project, implemented configuration management and system engineering practices, introduced user centered design methods.

    ·         Planned and managed interdisciplinary project teams including business and technical disciplines. Met with teams regularly to review technical, cost, and schedule status. Examples include:

    o   A super-insulated container to store temperature sensitive vaccines in a resource constrained environment. This technology keeps vaccines at the proper temperature for more than 30 days without power and communicates its status to a centralized distribution center over SMS. This technology has been featured on 60 Minutes & Wired Magazine and is a finalist for the 2014 EE Times and EDN ACE Awards. This technology has been licensed to a commercial partner and production is underway.

    o   An optical-electronic system that uses video cameras, software, and lasers to detect, track, and shoot mosquitos. This technology is intended to combat the spread of malaria and other vector borne diseases. Other applications are being considered including crop & livestock protection. This technology was featured in 2010’s TED talk, “Could this laser zap malaria?”.

    o   Electro-mechanical food processing equipment to help farmers in low infrastructure settings pasteurize their milk to preserve its value and nutritional benefits for the consumer. Multiple iterations were developed and tested in Kenya to harvest user feedback and evaluate product performance under real conditions. This technology has been successfully commercialized and is being sold throughout East Africa.

    o   An automated microscope that uses image recognition and machine learning algorithms to diagnose malaria more rapidly and accurately than current techniques. Usability studies are being conducted to harvest user preferences with an early prototype while software development proceeds in parallel. Field-testing is scheduled in 2015 with product development to follow thereafter.
