I like complex systems
I am a science and technology innovator with a deep connection to nature. I grew up in the migration corridor of rural east Texas, surrounded by wildlife. I started my career as a biologist, focusing on field and lab studies. I obtained a neuroscience PhD from Yale, with a focus on the neural bases of natural behavior. I continued on this path throughout my academic career, which culminated in tenure. My innovative spirit led to awards, publications, and a “transformative” rating by the National Science Foundation. With the capabilities of big data and wireless sensor networks, I realized that my positive impact could be scaled. I acquired an array of digital skills, left academia and joined a start-up. I built wearables and the cloud systems to support them. My small start-up teams built Internet of Things (IoT) products from concept to manufacturing. My hands-on roles focused on sensors and cloud development. Next, I joined McKinsey and served as a technical lead in their IoT practice, where I designed and built digital products and platforms for multiple industries from aerospace to banking. I continue to build and deploy my IoT expertise at Medtronic, where I lead cloud platforms and serve as the overall architect for a glucose sensor-based diabetes application.
