integrity and computer systems validation
symposium has been very memorable to

I first encountered PDA when I read PDA
Technical Report No. 49: Points to Consider
for Biotechnology Cleaning Validation.
TR-49 supports a lot of my work, and I
soon discovered that PDA has many more
industry-relevant technical reports, so I
decided to join.
I have used PDA documents extensively
in my professional career. As the industry
is grows into a risk- and science-based
approach, PDA documents like the
aforementioned technical reports and the
PDA Journal of Pharmaceutical Science and
Technology remain highly relevant.
I enjoy working in the field of risk
management. In the pharmaceutical industry, risk management directly impacts
human lives. In my current role as Technical
Director, I can impart a risk management
perspective to my colleagues. In addition,
my role allows me to be involved in the
various technical aspects of the projects
and initiatives in my organization.
I like to cook simple food that can be
enjoyed by my family and friends.
