Master in Science, Mechanical Engineering - Mechatronics @
Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio de Janeiro
I am a hands-on Ph.D. engineer that strongly believes on the “D” of R&D. I work well with external and internal Customers, Engineers, Scientists, Business Development, Sales & Marketing, Quality, Manufacturing/Production as well as Services to develop, deploy, and support reliable medical devices. I am recognized by team members as a great leader that manages cross-functional teams
I am a hands-on Ph.D. engineer that strongly believes on the “D” of R&D. I work well with external and internal Customers, Engineers, Scientists, Business Development, Sales & Marketing, Quality, Manufacturing/Production as well as Services to develop, deploy, and support reliable medical devices. I am recognized by team members as a great leader that manages cross-functional teams where people work hard and enjoy doing it again. The dozens of LinkedIn recommendations coming from team members, direct reports, supervisors, diverse departments, plus suppliers and customers support this claim.
More than 10 years of direct experience leading cross-functional teams from start-up to world leader medical device enterprises developing and supporting products that required software /hardware/ biological integration. Successfully managed development and transfer of dozens of instrumentation and processes to customers such as Eli Lilly, GSK, Intel, and Novartis (Chiron) resulting in multi-million dollar revenue for the companies I worked at.
Hands-on skills: project management, med-tech instrumentation, automation & robotics, Lean Six Sigma, Design of Experiments, electronic design, embedded systems development (hardware and software), software development (middleware, database, comm., apps, and graphical user interface), fast prototyping, microfluidics devices, sub-microliter liquid handling and dispensing, medical grade plastic injection, computer vision, hybrid off-shore software development, manual and automated testing, human machine interaction, and reliability engineering.
