Senior Technologist | EMC


Senior Technologist, Office of the CTO, EMC



Working on the edge of advanced technologies and understanding new trends as they emerge is the focus in my work. Whether it is exploring an opportunity with the Advanced Development Team or working with a University Researcher on their field of study I am immersed in technologies with many unknowns, a high degree of risk and that challenge the paradigm currently in place. It is a role that is highly unstructured at times, very dynamic and incredibly fun! I work with CTO's, CEOs, Professors, Inventors, Technologists, and frankly amazing people.
