Hi, I'm Vincent

Quality engineer, focused on manufacturing medical devices correctly the first time.

As of 3/30/15: Quality Assurance Engineer II at St. Jude Medical in Westford, Massachusetts

Primary Role (2013-): Quality engineer, focused on ensuring medical devices are correctly manufactured the first time. Holder of Certified Quality Engineer and Six Sigma Green Belt training certificates (ASQ). Special strengths: code-based data mining, industrial statistics. Working on: making quick, hard, data-driven decisions.1 year in software quality, 2 years and counting in manufacturing quality, at 2 fast-paced medical device startups, and 1 global medical device company. 

Quality Engineer Resume

Secondary Role (2011-): Freelancing patent illustrator when not on mode #1, providing fast, accurate, and detailed patent illustrations for IP law firms (mainly utility, office action reworks, some design patents). 

Former Role (2007-2012): Published research scientist in computational cardiovascular mechanics and heart surgery (UCSD, UCSF). First to show how the most common treatment for a leaky heart valve affects heart wall stress, which influences pathological backflow. Lead author of 1 journal publication, presenter at 2 international conferences. 

Researcher Curriculum Vitae

Status as of 3/30/15 - I recently joined St. Jude Medical in MA as a Quality Engineer, and still freelance as a patent illustrator for various law firms. Since 2008, I used to use this site to host my research-related projects. I left Feel free to browse around for biomedical engineering 
projects and publications I've pushed out in the past.   
  • Industrial statistics projects. The portfolio was current as of October 2013, and showcases things I can do for in 6σ (DOE, SPC, MSA, and more). After my heavy involvement with these tools at myoscience, this portfolio has lost its purpose. But if you're interested in applying industrial statistics, please ask me directly.
  • Here are my R&D projects in every biomedical engineering field, over 4 years. Later on, I may add (1) my VBA-powered Excel SPC system (great for database connectivity), and a tool I made to count alerts as a function of subgroup size for x̅-s and x̅-R charts. It's super awesome.
Quality and Engineering skill set:

This is what I'm capable of, overlapping design control and process validation: BOK. I've completed Minitab's Quality Trainer course, and am looking to apply my statistical skill set. Additionally, I am knowledgeable in FDA/ISO regulations for medical devices. My engineering skills are largely in finite element analysis, computational fluid dynamics, CAD (CSWA - Certified SolidWorks Associate), and applied mathematics. Off the computer, I can design electrical, mechanical, biomedical, and chemical experiments.
