I love working for the Synopsys Simpleware Product Group: there is great variations of projects from creating human body models for complex surgery to developing models of new composite materials for heat management to investigating the internal structures in museum artefacts – basically, anything with scanned data.
The best aspect about my job is talking to other people, understanding their projects, and then helping them. I am responsible for developing the workshop and training courses worldwide as well as being the Technical Lead on research projects.
Through various projects I have been exposed to lots of new and different industries and have even had the opportunity to watch live surgery, such as knee replacement and hip revision procedures.
I’ve been part of an internal Synopsys program on ‘Women in Leadership’. The program aimed to connect and develop women across Synopsys’s worldwide employee network, from software developers to recruitment specialists and security consultants. Confidential peer coaching sessions were part of the year-long program, wherein a group of women and myself would discuss our professional challenges. During these sessions with women from Europe, The Middle East and Africa, we would read and discuss leadership literature and meet with other successful Synopsys female leaders. This was a fantastic opportunity to meet colleagues in far-flung offices and learn from the very best!
