Bio

I am driven to do research - all kinds of research. For me, research is like breathing. It's fun. I learn something new every day. Nothing beats the feeling of analyzing data to identify solutions to problems and ways to improve. 

By training, I’m a biomedical research scientist. I earned a PhD in molecular pharmacology and worked in a laboratory for 15 years. I wore a lab coat and had close personal relationships with test tubes and pipettes. I published papers with titles like "Combinatorial Discovery of Tumor Targeting Peptides Using Phage Display”. Then, the unexpected occurred: I became allergic to mice and I could no longer work in labs. 

Research skills are transferable. I apply that competence to my business. Research Communiqué does business, marketing, and policy research to find data-driven insights and recommendations. For businesses and organizations that don’t have in-house analytics, we offer on-demand research and analysis capacity so they can achieve success by using data and information to explore and evaluate opportunities for value.
