Education and Experience

Amber is driven to utilize a strong technical toolbox, love of complex problem solving and a breadth of product development experience to drive change and improve healthcare. She is currently a Clinical Content Analyst at Via Oncology, an Elsevier Company. She builds relationships with key opinion leaders in academic and community medical centers across the country to drive evidence-based consensus on optimal standards of care for cancer patients and translates these verdicts into decision support software tools. She also collaborates closely with the product development team to create compelling analysis and visualizations for what users want from the web-based internal tool Pathbuildr.

Through her previous professional experiences, and with a Master in Biomedical Engineering, and two Bachelors in Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University, Amber has a strong background in developing medical devices and image analysis algorithms. While working as a contracted biomedical engineer at a consumer development firm, Nottingham Spirk, Amber participated in multiple phases of the rapid product development process: market research, ideation, prototyping, testing, design transfer planning, manufacturing, and quality assurance. During her Clinical Practicum Master’s Research, she independently wrote a preprocessing segmentation function that reduced the work to convert a series of CT image slices into a 3D rendered model down to a third of the original timeline.
