I have worked in the pharmaceutical industry for over 25 years, 17 of which has been using Blow Fill Seal technology. Prior to joining Teva (previously Steripak and then IVAX Pharmaceuticals), I worked for approximately 8 years in the Microbiology Department of Bristol-Myers Squibb. I joined Teva in Runcorn, England (at the time known as Steripak) in 1993 and have worked in Quality there for the whole time.

I am currently Head of Quality and am responsible for all Quality matters for the site. I am a Member of the Society of Biology, a Chartered Biologist and registered on Teva's manufacturer's licence as a Qualified Person.

I have extensive experience with a variety of BFS machines, ALP, Rommelag Bottlepak types 3012, 305 and 4010. I have a wealth of experience from operational, troubleshooting and validation aspects of BFS technology and I believe I could use this knowledge and experience to help develop and promote the BFSIOA.
