Jamie is Head of Device Testing at Team and is responsible for ensuring that Team is able to perform high quality test work, generating high quality data resulting in concise, insightful analysis. He achieves this through managing a team of dedicated test technicians as well as a technical lead or review role on certain projects.
“Working in the medical technology sector means that I encounter a wide range of technical challenges almost daily. Being aware of the potential end-benefits of some of the projects I get involved with makes my typical day at work both exciting and rewarding.”
“The rigour that needs to be applied to the work we do and the process of gathering empirical evidence and extracting meaning from it is something I’ve developed a particular interest in over the years. I take particular pride in using my passion in this area to help our project teams deliver data and analysis, in-line with or even exceeding our client’s expectations.”
Prior to joining Team in 2013, Jamie gained invaluable, extensive hands-on experience of developing and using a range of “industry-standard” and bespoke test equipment and analytical techniques while working as a Senior Scientist at Cambridge Consultants and a QC Scientist at Whatman.
Jamie has over fifteen years of experience in product development and has developed particular expertise in understanding the test requirements and best practices for all manner of medical and consumer products, from initial prototype jigs and fixtures to semi-automated instruments for use in DVT. He has managed a number of Design Verification Testing (DVT) programs for drug delivery devices and has a good working knowledge of statistical analysis of data.
Jamie has a BSc (Hons) in Molecular and Cell Biology from the University of Witwatersrand, South Africa.
