Favorite quote:

Your top 3 favorite Podcasts/Books/Movies?


What a Great Punk (podcast), The Sopranos, or anything from David Attenborough.


What is something in the Bio-Medical your field have to deal with that you want to fix?


There are currently no mandatory standards governing the formatting of machine-readable codes used to create barcodes and QR codes for medical products. Regulation in this space would help to standardize the machine-readable barcoding framework and remove inconsistencies and incompatibilities in this space.


What do you do at Surgical Biofix?


At Surgical BioFix I work with the Quality team to ensure the implementation of our Quality Management system and liaise with services providers and testing laboratories.


What are your credentials/experience, for working in your position?


I completed my bachelor’s degree in early 2020. The final unit of my degree was an internship with Surgical BioFix, which gave me valuable industry experience and insight into working in a GMP-accredited facility. Following this, I was hired by Surgical BioFix as a Quality Technician, where I was trained in our quality system and the regulatory bodies that govern our industry.


What do you like about working at Surgical Biofix?


I like the problem-solving aspect of my job, where I’m challenged to use my critical thinking skills to devise solutions to issues that arise in Quality and Production.


What’s your background?


I grew up on the Sunshine Coast and moved to Brisbane in late 2015 for university. Here I studied Biomedical Science at the Queensland University of Technology where I gained an appreciation for scientific reasoning, human physiology, infectious diseases, and microbiology.


What are the values that drive you?


I strive to give my best effort for every task I am working on.


What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?


I enjoy getting outside when I can, you can usually find me riding my bike or skateboard around Coorparoo, going to the beach with my partner, or relaxing with my cats.
