I have more than 20 years of pharmaceutical industry experience in the discovery, development and approval of large and small molecules, including antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs/TDCs) with a focus on quantitative clinical pharmacology, PK/PD, drug metabolism, and translational sciences . As the Senior Director of Oncology, my group currently provides global clinical pharmacology support for all gRED oncology molecules in our portfolio both marketed and those in various stages of clinical development. In addition I serve as a member and Chair of Clinical Pharmacology Leadership Group (CPLG), International Consortium for Innovation and Quality (IQ). During my 12-year tenure at Genentech, I have held varying levels of seniority starting out as a scientist/individual contributor on project teams, senior scientist, pharmacology sub team cross functional leader, clinical pharmacology group leader and Associate Director.

Prior to Genentech, I was a Senior Scientist with Novartis and Genesoft Pharmaceuticals where I provided strategic support in drug discovery and development for oncology and infectious diseases. I have also been a study director and a co-principal investigator for pharmacokinetics and drug metabolism studies at Stanford Research Institute (SRI) International.
