Years at Genentech
Awards & Honors

I joined Genentech in 2012 to support the early stage development of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients and Drug products. I lead the analytical chemistry efforts to develop proper and efficient characterization methods to guide process chemistry synthetic route development and drug product formulation processes. Furthermore, we support the manufacturing of clinical supplies, validate analytical methods, conduct release testing, and write analytical sections of Health Authority regulatory filing documents.

My group is also responsible for constantly evaluating and developing new technologies to improve efficiency and High throughput analysis. My research interests include ultra-fast separations and two-dimensional chromatographic techniques. I am really excited to work at Genentech since it is a science-driven company and supports science and innovation.
