I have been in the biotechnology sector for 8 years, working at different locations and roles. My broad background with diligent work ethic allows me to fit into adaptable situations and apply a range of skills. Participated in multiple projects and developed many end-user solutions, which empathize investigative skills and dynamic communication with groups. In addition, skillset on computers and technological application is very intuitive.
