Principal Researcher, Ford

I am happiest when working with an interdisciplinary team of people to solve for problems that require cross-function expertise and collaboration. I thrive working on projects that draw on my automotive and transportation domain knowledge coupled with my experience of leading and enabling inter-disciplinary teams and bringing a technical point of view. At Ford, i was one of the first employees at their Silicon Valley office and help set up the Research & Innovation Center in Palo Alto since its launch in early 2015 i have helped scale the operation from a small 5 person team to the 120+ automotive R&D center it is today. Currently am part of a group called Greenfield Labs created by Ford Smart Mobility in collaboration with IDEO to explore a radical future of shared mobility through human-centered design where we are exploring radical ideas to disrupt augment remodel and reimagine mobility for humans and the things they love.
