Senior Vice President, US Head of Quantitative Sciences at Certara
What Is Your Role At Certara?
Currently, I am the US head of quantitative sciences (QSS-US) consulting. At present, there are ~50 pharmacometricians, biostatisticians, and statistical programmers in QSS-US. Next month, I will be taking a new role as SVP of Commercial and Product Strategy within Certara’s SimCYP division.
What Are You Most Proud Of In Your Career?
I couldn’t be prouder of the team we have grown here in QSS-US. It’s hard to believe that just six years ago, I led a team of just three consultants (myself included). Our team members come from a plurality of cultures and educational backgrounds, and yet, their esprit de corps and professionalism are truly inspirational.
What Is Your Role At ISoP?
Currently, I chair the ISOP Communications Committee, whose remit it is to oversee the society website and all other communications with ISOP membership. Along with Marion Bouillon-Pichault, I also co-chair an Educational Working Group on soft skills and communication. We have proudly sponsored several webinars on these topics in 2021 and 2022, with more to come soon.

- I am an ordained minister, and have presided over two wedding ceremonies (so far).

- I am a huge Sci Fi and fantasy nerd.

What Is Your Favorite Summer Activity?
