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.
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.
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.
Cao Tri Do
I have a background in information technology and computational neuroscience. I bring multiple years of experience in research ranging from clinical neuroscience, neuropsychology, mobile imaging to machine learning, AI and virtual reality. As a data scientist at IDUN, I work on the full data science lifecycle, from backend to frontend, implement the cloud computing infrastructure as well as design machine learning products.
Having an academic background in Psychology and Neuroscience, I support with the identification of neural and psychological applications of the “Internet of Humans”. Moreover, together with professional experience in the field of medical neuroimaging, my responsibilities at IDUN further extend from testing new in-ear EEG electrodes prototypes, to evaluating and validating various experimental paradigms.
After my bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering with specialization in biomedical engineering, I now want to collect some hands-on experience. I contribute with my knowledge in electronics to find the best hardware solution, test the system and finally connect it to our software.
To complete my bachelor’s degree in material science, my aim is to get some experience in the industry. I am fascinated about the link between human body and modern technologies. It is an exciting challenge with a high potential, for which I love bringing my collected knowledge from the lectures and the lab, to improve and test our materials.
