I am most passionate about... mobile technology and the way it is helping to make our lives healthier. From information storage to diagnosis assistance, mobile technology has an efficient way to help us in every part of our life. Monitoring technology is making it possible to detect early signs of ailments prior to any physical signs appearing.

I chose a career in biotech because... it is a challenging field that gives us countless valuable products if we utilize it in a proper way. I see a great potential in this field. In near future, biotech will reach a point where mobile devices will act as personal health-assistants. I always want to be a part of creating an application that will help many reach their health goals by tracking and monitoring their bio-data.

I am most proud about... the work I do everyday. My motivation is knowing that my work at RightBlue Labs is helping athletes prepare for success.

What’s the best part about working in biotech? You never know the real value of your product until it comes out. You have no idea how your work can change the face of mobile health industry. Every second in this field is as exciting as watching a football match.

How has wage subsidy impacted your career? I am thankful to Biotalent Canada for running the wage subsidy program. It helped me at the right time to find myself at RightBlue Labs as an application developer and gave me a great opportunity to showcase my skills.”

To other recent graduates I would say… gather a team and start working on an idea. It will teach you everything. No idea is small if you present it in the right way. Every second counts. If you have free time, use it to either learn something that helps the society, or use it to show the world that you are busy creating a wonder!
