Aubrey Francisco

“For me, learning something new requires making it bigger before making it smaller. I gather a lot of information in a somewhat chaotic manner and then distill it into a clear and coherent “big picture” framework that I use to develop expertise.”

Aubrey comes to this role from the biomedical research field, where she developed and evaluated novel materials for treating lower back pain.
