Director Ophta and IHD Device Portfolio, Global Device & Packaging Development (GDPD) in TRD
As an (industrial) pharmacist, I started working in a public pharmacy directly after my studies. After 1 year, I moved to the industry and took up different rolls in QA, Production and Engineer at Alcon Puurs, Belgium. After 5 years, I started working for the Novartis Device and Development organization taking care of the transfer and industrialization of technologies. My experience on a manufacturing site helped me in getting a better understanding about the challenges coming along with transfer processes. As of January 2021 I’m leading one of the device portfolio groups in the Global Design and Packaging Development group.
In my spare time, I like to go for a run or play a tennis game. I am interested in music and play the guitar and the piano (just started).
