Summary

I'm a biomedical engineer, expert in microfluidics and implantable devices, with a passion for business and entrepreneurship. I obtained a PhD in Bioengineering at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) where I studied lymphatic system engineering. I am now project manager for the Lymphatica spin-off project at the University Hospital of Lausanne (CHUV).
