Theresa is a clinical pharmacologist and pharmacometrician with nearly 10 years of experience in pharma and biotech, supporting small molecule and biologics development. Prior to joining Applied Biomath, Theresa held positions in clinical pharmacology and pharmacometrics at Merck, Amgen, and CSL Behring. Most recently, Theresa led the pharmacometrics group at CSL Behring. She oversaw modeling and simulation activities across the portfolio, facilitating rational, quantitative approaches to decision-making from preclinical development through submission and lifecycle management. Theresa also has extensive experience in clinical pharmacology, working on cross-functional project teams guiding drug development across a range of therapeutic areas, including immuno-oncology, infectious diseases, neuroscience, and rare diseases. With her combination of technical skills and clinical pharmacology experience, she is well-positioned to develop effective, fit-for-purpose modeling and simulation strategies that address clinically relevant questions, enable decision-making, and facilitate positive regulatory interactions throughout the development process.
Theresa received her PhD in Chemical Engineering from the University of California Santa Barbara, where she developed a systems pharmacology model to describe tau pathophysiology and identify therapeutic targets for neurological disorders like Alzheimer’s disease. She received her BS degree in Chemical Engineering from Lehigh University.
