Bio

Howdy, I'm Ho Ming Lau, a talkative tech enthusiast with data, design and development skills based in Amsterdam. I do product management for healthcare and science. Creating beautiful, robust and useful digital products makes me tick. I have fulfilled a leadership role in a healthcare and academic setting for many years. My goal is to innovate health and science tech. And oh, I love sushi.

“A great product manager has the brains of an engineer, the heart of a designer and the speech of a diplomat.”
