Why I chose ESTEEM ?

I chose ESTEEM because it offers a unique opportunity to build a pipeline of entrepreneurial skills that will enable me to test myself against diverse problems and challenges beyond my technical background.

My capstone project and why I'm excited about it ?

I’m working with molecular diagnostics start-up Sense Biodetection to explore opportunities for their new Veros™ instrument-free single use rapid molecular platform in the healthcare industry. I’m looking forward to being a part of bringing this unique technology to the diagnostics space and seeing how it will shake-up the status quo!

What I hope to do after ESTEEM ?

I'm hoping to take on a role where I can have a positive impact on the world while also continuing to develop the skills I will have acquired from ESTEEM.

What I like to do when I'm not working ?

Reading, Cycling, Surf Sports, DIY
