Biography

I manage a group called Emerging Technology at a global information services provider, Thomson Reuters. I was trained as a materials and mechanical engineer. In 2009, I went back to graduate school to get a degree in engineering systems and in business management. My graduate degree enables me to explore new problems to solve in the field of information technology. Today, I identify and evaluate emerging technology trends. I also manage start-up and academic partnerships. I love my job because everyday I try to make learn about new technologies and try to understand their implications for our business and for our customers. Prior to joining Thomson Reuters, I worked in two technology start-ups. I started as a senior engineer doing some mechanical and materials design and then I became a manager for new technology development. Earlier on in my career, I was awarded several patents for my work on microscopic device design. I live in Boston with my husband Bryant and our two children Layla and Liam.
