As co-founder and CCO I shape our vision, holistically implement our strategy and drive our commercialization efforts. I coordinate all efforts in marketing, sales, customer relations and business operations. As former CTO and tech-savvy entrepreneur, I am also in charge of managing our IP.
Dr. Moritz Thielen
I have a PhD of Sciences in Mechanical and Process Engineering, with significant experience in cutting-edge technology and products, specifically in sensors, energy harvesting, thermoelectrics and wearables. I am managing all R&D at IDUN, coordinating material development, electronics development, application engineering, physiology research and software development.
Dr. Katja Junker
I am an experienced polymer chemist, having completed a PhD and Post-Doc at ETH Zurich. I am well versed in matters of chemistry and product engineering, with experience in automotive thermoplastics, textiles and wearable computing. I lead our material development, including material selection, processing and testing, in-house sample production and prototyping. I am also the safety officer for our labs, and in charge of quality control.
With my extensive experience in finance and operations in start-ups as well as Corporates of the Tech and Pharma industry, I support IDUN in its growth journey. I drive the scaling up in the areas of finance, company compliance and administration. In addition, I collaborate with the founders for the fundraising activities and investor relations as well as support the team in questions of business operations and supply chain.
Being a Neuropsychologist, experienced in Neuroimaging and Clinical Neuropsychology, at IDUN I am responsible for identification and application of biomarkers. They are derived from brain signals and other physiological data and help us to understand emotions, stress, and optimal states of mind.
With my experiences in multiple areas of neurotechnology, I leverage software development to validate our offerings at each stage of product development. My experience in building neurotech communities and contributing to different niches of the neurotech development process allows me to see next steps and uniquely identify potential solutions.
After my data analysis internship at IDUN, I am currently writing my Master’s Thesis about the electrical interface characteristics of bioelectrodes. Having a background in medical technologies, my aim is to work towards a more holistic understanding of biosignals. For this, I design simulation models and tools to help us build the best possible human-computer interfaces.
As IDUN’s first employee, I have been responsible for data acquisition, electronics development, bio signal processing and IT infrastructure. I am very hands-on and am the go-to for any tech tasks we need done. Alongside my job at IDUN, I am finishing up my studies in Informatics and Computer Science at ZHAW School of Engineering.
I work on translating the IDUN vision of a connected world between humans and devices into tangible product prototypes and experiences. My work spans the technology landscape from hardware to software design, from signal processing to artistic programming.
Dr. Mark Melnykowycz
As an artist-engineer, I take a holistic approach to developing products at IDUN. My PhD in mechanical engineering and background in materials science allow me to bridge the gap between R&D and applications. My understanding of biopotential signals and the hardware allows me to translate our ideas into products people will love.
I am the office manager of IDUN. With my background as baker with an additional commercial apprenticeship, I have an eye for details and make sure our office runs at full functional. Additionally, I support IDUN in any administrative tasks needed in overseeing our corporate governance.
I am interning at IDUN where I work on electrical and mechanical characterization of the electrochemical skin-electrode interface. I create our real-life data sets from various application-specific tests, and process this data to understand correlations between these materials and the bio signals. As a trained biomedical engineer, I am also expanding IDUN’s knowhow on the electrode-amplifier interface. After my 6 months internship I will write a 6-month master thesis with IDUN.
