”I have more than twenty years of experience in the Medical Device industry in various positions, with responsibilities for leading a quality assurance team and overall regulatory compliance according to the ISO 13485 standard, Brazilian (ANVISA), Australian (TGA), US FDA and the EU MDR requirements. I have also worked in the Management Representative role for various companies and most recently as a Person Responsible for Regulatory Compliance (PRRC).

My responsibilities have also spanned the design and development of new Medical Devices, their immaterial property rights (IPR) and supply management. I have worked in start-ups and growth companies for most of my career, holding also the role of a co-founder, which has provided me with a wide perspective into the challenges that young companies face on their way to the international market.”
