I want to make an impact on people lives by tackling big global challenges in energy, information, and technology. I believe the key driver of change is supporting robust innovation hubs and facilitating technology evolution from ideation, to prototyping, to market adoption.
I worked as a researcher in academia for almost a decade, designing and developing technologies that can have an impact in the way we transmit data, and generate energy. I co-authored more than 40 scientific publications and a patent. Interested in a broader view of the energy industry and the entrepreneurship process, I moved to the Department of Energy Solar Office to pursue a strategic role in supporting technology evolution and innovation. Here, I leverage my technical and leadership skills to negotiate and manage a $60M portfolio of R&D projects, mostly led by startups looking to innovate and bringing new technologies into the market. In my role, I provide support and oversee their projects, establishing technical and business milestones and providing guidance on technology development, stakeholder engagement, cost targets, market assessment, business strategy.
