Meet our team and Advisory Board
CEO / CTO, co-founder
Exceptionally strong background in computational techniques, experimental technology development and animal research with more than fifteen years of experience in software development, hardware control and AI-based computational techniques. He developed multiple experimental pipelines, such as a novel virtual reality system for animal research, adopted by multiple laboratories, including UCL, University of Cambridge, King’s College London, and the University of Hong Kong.
Co-founder, CSA, PhD in Neuroscience
One of the leading scientists in spatial memory and navigation (published in Nature and Science) is on the Science Magazine Editorial Board; Deep Dementia Phenotyping Network, the UK DRI forum and ARUK; receiver of Eppendorf Science Prize (2015), the Wellcome Trust Sir Henry Dale (2017) and DRI fellowships (2019).
At the University of Cambridge, she leads one of the few labs in the world combining cutting edge optical and electrophysiological techniques. Together with Dr Bauza, they co-developed several revolutionary behavior paradigms such as the Honeycomb maze (published in Nature) and the smart-Kage.
Lead software / machine learning developer
Nejc studied Computational Biophysics at undergraduate and graduate levels, and during this time, he developed a strong interest in using AI-based approaches for healthcare. In particular, he specializes in machine learning approaches in neuroscience.
Nejc is an avid mountaineer, hiker, and nature lover
Head of Engineering
PhD in Automation and Robotics, master’s degree in control systems. For over a decade he has developed bio-inspired and biomimetic robotics – soft robots using smart materials, that were exhibited at the Natural Science Museum of London and published in scientific journals. He has multiple patents in the areas of Agricultural Robotics, head and neck surgery and health care. he innovation leader of the first public-private centre for research and innovation in the Internet of Things (IoT) in Colombia, was a CTO and director of the mechatronics engineering department.
Business development. Ex-Pfizer, Vertex Pharmaceuticals
Dainius has over 20 years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry developing pharmaceutical materials (Pfizer Inc, Vertex Pharmaceuticals, etc.).
He is also educated in photography, graphic and web design. He maintains his own photography and video content creation business and has a proven record of accomplishment of growing business via innovative media solutions.
Advisor - Product Testing and Development
Hinze has BSc in biomedical science and MSc in neuroscience. His passion lies in understanding the neural mechanisms underpinning cognition and behaviors. He is keen on translating basic research findings into applicable solutions for biomedical problems.
In his free time, Hinze enjoys practicing art and design. Working as a freelance illustrator, he strives to create connections between topics of art and science.
Scientific Advisory Board
Nobel Prize winner in Physiology and Medicine, Professor of Neuroscience at University College London
John O’Keefe has discovered place cells and outlined the theory of the hippocampal function as the cognitive map. He has pioneered a number of the most influential techniques in neuroscience, including in vivo multi-tetrode neural recording, Neuropixels probes as well as behavioural tests for rodents and humans.
UK DRI Programme Leader for Animal Models
Frances Wiseman investigates Alzheimer’s disease in individuals with Down syndrome. She completed a PhD researching Prion disease at the University of Edinburgh and is currently a group leader in UCL UK DRI. She has vast expertise in Down syndrome and animal models. For this, she was awarded the 3R prize for the reduction of animal use in 2016. She is also part of the London Down Syndrome Consortium – a large, multidisciplinary group of clinicians, human geneticists, developmental psychologists, mouse geneticists, psychiatrists and cellular scientists working towards understanding dementia in people with Down syndrome.
Principal Research Fellow of Metacognition and Executive Functions group, University College London
Away from UCL, Dennis works as a consultant neurologist and runs a cognitive disorders clinic in mid-Sussex with a special focus on patients with mild cognitive impairment and the emerging phenomenon of cognitive Covid.
