Agile agile-transformation Bioinformatics Scrum software-engineering United States

I am an inventor , speaker , mentor and a bioinformatics software test leader with an engineering background in Bioinformatics. I have more than 10+ years of software testing experience and have worked as a manual and automation tester on a wide range of products like data analysis pipelines , instrument software, LIMS, web-applications, integrated solutions which are used in the fields of agriculture, transplant genomics, forensics and oncology. Currently I leads and manage the Bioinformatics Software Test team at Guardant Health, which builds the world’s leading comprehensive liquid biopsy. 

This non-invasive tool for accessing and sequencing tumor DNA is used by oncologists to help advanced cancer patients. I also lead the bay area chapter for “Women Who Test” and hopes to grow this community. In my spare time, I love to spend time with my family and write new songs for my son.

I am quite amazed by the fact that people think agile methodologies cannot be used or can not be successful in a regulated environment. Given I lived this first hand with my team mates and project leads. I want to spread the word and share my team story , so that other teams in a similar situation are not disheartened / they know how this can be achieved.
