Dinalie Karunaratne, Senior Bioengineer - Hips NPD, DePuy Synthes
Dinalie graduated university with a collection of degrees and rowing accolades. After earning a bachelors in Mechanical Engineering, she went on to complete a masters in Materials Engineering.
Having grown up in an environment with high ethnic and cultural diversity and strong female role models, she is passionate to see that translate into industry.
In her role as a Senior Bioengineer that means questioning and innovating working processes to bring in more diverse perspectives - ultimately improving the design of medical devices to reach and meet the needs of the patient groups carrying the highest burden of disease.
In her role as a human being that means educating herself on the hopes and dreams, and challenges, of underrepresented groups, and improving the diversity and inclusion culture for her fellow (and future!) colleagues. Her work in this space recently won her a company-wide award.
