As an enthusiastic recent graduate, I am eager to join a dynamic and innovative work environment. I hope to use my two year experience in biopharmceutical manufacturing and my background in life sciences specifically for process engineering roles. My industrial and international academic exposure has given me excellent communication and organization skills.
