I have a scientific background with a BSc and PhD in chemistry, both from NUI, Galway. My industry experience began in chemical process development and technical services in the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) industry. I have also worked in validation, production, quality control and quality assurance, including supervisory roles. My current role is in validation support for Zoetis, a biopharma veterinary manufacturer in Tullamore, Co Offaly. I am also completing Semester 3 of the Level 8 Higher Diploma in Biopharmaceutical and Medical Device Manufacturing with Innopharma Education. My main interests are in sport and music, particularly golf and Galway GAA.
I was born and raised in Brazil, where I got my Bachelor's Degree in Pharmaceutical Science from the University of Campinas (Sao Paulo). I started my professional journey in the Cosmetic/Beauty Industry in Brazil, as a Regulatory Affairs Analyst at Natura Cosmetics, where I stayed almost 3 years.
In 2015 I decided to go to Sydney - Australia, to have an overseas life experience. I stayed 5 years there, studying Marketing and Business, and working in the Hospitality Industry.
In 2020 I planned to leave Australia and move to Ireland. I reached Dublin in September 2020.
In March 2021 I got into the Innopharma Validation Program. I am currently working at Amgen Dun Laoghaire since October 2021, as a Validation Engineer, providing support to the Equipment Qualification area, working mainly with HVAC requalification’s.
On my free time I like going for outdoor walks, I try to go to the gym a few days a week, love reading and meeting friends.
Hi everyone, my name is Eimear Conway! I completed the Validation Engineering course with Innopharma in October of this year and just recently started working in Pfizer Newbridge in packaging technology, focusing specifically on cleaning validation at the moment!
Prior to that, I completed an undergrad in Environmental Science in May this year. While in college I had several part-time jobs such as waitressing, retail admin and farm work.
In my spare time I enjoy playing sports, particularly Gaelic which I play with my local team, St. Maurs.
