I am a highly motivated science professional seeking a challenging role in the biotech industry where my education and experience will add significant value.
My qualifications include experience in molecular/cell biology, neurobiology and biochemistry, background and understanding in many areas of physical and life sciences. I have good analytical and troubleshooting skills, including design, implementation and prioritization of experiments, and to communicate the findings through presentations and reports on a routine basis. I am innovative, creative, forward-thinker and keen to develop my understanding and acquire new skills through employment.
I have excellent interpersonal skills with the ability to develop relationships with key opinion leaders and multiple stakeholders across diverse scientific disciplines. With a strong work ethic, I love to work in a team environment but also do well working independently with minimal supervision.

Doctoral Research II
Investigation of the correlation between the enthalpy of oxygenation of several Hemoglobin species (animals and human) and their respective hydration changes, protons and chloride concentration. Moreover, contributions of enthalpy, thermal capacity, entropy and free energy of oxygenation, as well as the nature of the energetic of the protein solvation were obtained.
