What inspired you to pursue a career in HealthTech?

I have always been excited about tech but I happened to pursue a career in medicine, so this is a great way for me to merge my two passions

If you could wave a magic wand and advance any area or issue in HealthTech - what would it be?

Better systems so patients are not kept waiting in long lines because the health staff is burdened with managing multiple complex systems that are not very intuitive to use

If you were a superhero, what would your power be?

It's a tie between flying and being invisible!

Do you want to tell us any fun facts about yourself? Or do you have any hidden skills?

One of my hidden skills is being able to empathise with people and counsel/advice/guide them effectively. Another is being great at all sorts of administrative work. I always aim to combine these two skills to create systems that are not only efficient but also human-centered
