For the past two decades I have been working in and speaking about tech, innovation and science. I have an extensive technical and scientific background, which I leverage to solve real-world business problems. I am the Chief Technology Officer at Alpha Health, a moonshot backed by Telefonica with the goal of improving life for billions of people. Alpha was created to address some of the biggest problems in society by delivering radical solutions and breakthrough technology. Prior to that, I worked as CTO at Badi, a growing startup where I crafted the tech and the team that built it from the ground up. During my time at Badi, I scaled up from 0 to 1+ million users and I directly contributed to secure $46M VC funding in Europe and US. I hold a PhD in Information and Communication Technologies with a specialization in Affective Computing and Emotion AI.
