"May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears" - Nelson Mandela
Hello, I am a Biotech Innovation Strategy Leader on a mission to transform the way that we understand and treat human health by leveraging the emerging revolutions in computational biology, information technology, and advanced algorithms (aka 'Digital Transformation').
The intersection of these three trends is about to empower scientists to describe biological systems with the same mathematical accuracy that is achievable for physical systems.
We are entering an era of understanding just how truly biological life, and we as human beings, are Strangers in a Strange Land* when it comes to our interpretation of reality in general and biology in particular.
I am personally and deeply driven by an interest in maximizing ethics-driven business profitability from the innovation rennasaince that is beginning to unfold as the data and biology revolutions meet and build on one another. You can take a look at my professional resume in the About section.
Get your grokking* glasses ready folks and, whatever you do
DON'T PANIC* 😉

* Did my nerdy science fiction references pique your interest?
Stranger in a Strange Land was written by Robert A. Heinlein in 1961. Heinlein invented a Martian language for the novel. In Heinlein's Martian, the literal translation of "grok" is "to drink" and the figurative translation is "to comprehend", "to love", and "to be one with".
The phrase "don't panic" is from The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. In this novel, a space traveler uses an instruction book to navigate interstellar travel; the cover of this book has the phrase DON'T PANIC written on it. Incidentally, Elon Musk apparently wrote this phrase on the hood of the Tesla roadster that traveled in the Falcon Heavy rocket launched by SpaceX in 2018.
