Thorbjorg is a member of the electronics and software engineering group at Team Consulting, where she works on a variety of different projects. Her current focus is verification testing and testing environment set-up.
“I am excited to use my knowledge as well as expand my skills in electronics and software while working on different projects across a variety of medical sectors.”
“I have always been fascinated by using engineering principles to solve issues in healthcare. I like the idea of working on a solution for a problem that is affecting people’s lives and knowing that the solution can really have an impact. After getting some experience in working in the medical device industry and seeing that the work that I was doing was really improving people’s lives, I knew that this is what I wanted to do as a career.”
“My role at Team means I get a chance to change lives for the better by working with highly skilled people on new and exciting products that can truly make a difference.”
Thorbjorg has a bachelor’s degree in Mechatronics from Reykjavik University, and a master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering from Imperial College London. She completed an internship with deCODE Genetics where she was involved in writing an algorithm in Python that could detect structural variations in the genome. Between her bachelor’s and master’s degrees, Thorbjorg worked as a process engineer in the manufacturing team at Ossur, where she worked on manufacturing, failure analysis and regulatory projects for bionic lower limb prosthetics. For her master’s thesis, Thorbjorg worked with an orthopaedic surgeon on creating a device that can detect ligament injuries in the knee, using 3D printing and electronics.
